IoT based remote heart rate monitoring system
With the advent of IoT technologies and decreasing cost of wireless sensors, the use of remote healthcare monitoring systems is growing rapidly, thereby allowing health care access to more people at affordable costs. To illustrate the concept of IoT based patient monitoring, Raj from Embedded Lab has shared a project article on how to build a remote heart rate monitoring system using ESP8266 and Easy Pulse sensor. The project uses a TFT LCD to display heart beat rate and PPG waveform locally, as well as uploads the pulse rate to a Google spreadsheet for accessing the data from remote. The Google sheet’s Chart feature allows the remote user to visually track the pulse rate variation over time.
