Project Abstract

Prototype of a portable wireless biometric sensor

Battery-powered device with fuel gauge

Mounted on the wrist

Monitor pulse rate, SpO2 and skin temperature

Transmit the information via Wi-Fi for remote web access

NFC chip allows immediate access

Accelerometer on the shoulder for fall detection

Manual and automatic alarm system.

environmental impact
Environmental Impact
  • PCB Fabrication
    • Exposure to hazardous chemicals during manufacture
    • Small PCB minimizes impact
    • EU addressing the situation through RoHS and WEEE
  • LiPo
    • More durable than Ni-Cd batteries but can still explode when overcharged
    • Difficult to recycle
  • Power Consumption
    • Very low powered device
    • Limit the use of Wi-Fi
    • Use of servers for web hosting
ethical issues
Ethical Issues
  • Calibration
    • Ensure sensors report correct readings and conform to all existing standards
    • Extensive testing phase
  • Safety
    • Built in system redundancies to mitigate the failure of high risk components
    • Ensure that our device does not affect patients with medical devices like a pacemaker.
  • Privacy
    • Handle sensitive medical data
    • Provide proper safeguards to prevent misuse
