e-Health Sensor Platform for Arduino and Raspberry Pi by Cooking Hacks

Posted on December 11, 2012 by Cooking Hacks There have been 7 comment(s)

e-healthThe e-Health Sensor Shield allows Arduino and Raspberry Pi users to perform biometric and medical applications where body monitoring is needed by using 9 different sensors: pulse, oxygen in blood (SPO2), airflow (breathing), body temperature, electrocardiogram (ECG), glucometer, galvanic skin response (GSR - sweating), blood pressure (sphygmomanometer) and patient position (accelerometer).

This information can be used to monitor in real time the state of a patient or to get sensitive data in order to be subsequently analysed for medical diagnosis. Biometric information gathered can be wirelessly sent using any of the 6 connectivity options available: Wi-Fi, 3G, GPRS, Bluetooth, 802.15.4 and ZigBee depending on the application.

If real time image diagnosis is needed a camera can be attached to the 3G module in order to send photos and videos of the patient to a medical diagnosis center.

Data can be sent to the Cloud in order to perform permanent storage or visualized in real time by sending the data directly to a laptop or Smartphone. iPhone and Android applications have been designed in order to easily see the patient's information.

You can find our e-Health Sensor Platform Complete Kit to get a complete First Aid Kit for Makers or get the sensors separately.

    I'll suggest to add a expired CO2 sensor to this platfrom. Capnography is very useful vital sign and its use is spreading widely.
    Seems also that already exits CO2 sensors
    Also some other sensing would be nice (metahemoglobin, carboxihemoglobin...) but the use is not so general

  • Thanks Albert! As the shield has some free headers, you can also connect it to the shield.

  • totalmente de acuerdo con ahoms es más ultil la capnografía pues es un indicador de ventilación respiratorio y más útil que el sensor de flujo aereo pues el paciente puede tener una respiración nasal. Monitorizando electro, pO2, Capnografía, tensión arterial y temperatura ya es muy, muy completo

  • Can i interface other devices to this platform ? Say USB driver less Stethoscope or Ottoscopes ?

  • Wow Prashanth, nice question.. we are afraid it will require an special development, but ask our technical team in our forum:

    Thanks, regards,
