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

Posted on December 11, 2012 by Cooking Hacks There have been 3 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 http://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/16300/wiring-co2-sensor
    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. http://www.cooking-hacks.com/index.php/mq135-air-quality.html

  • 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
