Wearable System for Ambulatory Healthcare Monitoring
In this paper, we describe the development of a
wearable system for monitoring the healthcare parameters in
ambulatory conditions. The system has been developed using
Texas Instrument’s ADS 1298 (an 8-channel, 24-bit ADC for
biopotential measurement) and ST Microelectronics’
STM32L431RCT6 microcontroller (an ARM cortex-M4, 80MHz,
LQFP-64 MCU). It is a low-cost system capable of recording
electrocardiogram (ECG), electroencephalogram (EEG), blood
oxygen saturation (SpO2) and body temperature. The recorded
ECG and EEG signals can be viewed both on on-board OLED
display as well as on the computer via Bluetooth. Thus, the
system capable of acquiring both ECG and EEG signals on a
single acquisition unit has been developed. This portable, lowcost
healthcare monitoring system would not only be
advantageous to common people but also could be significantly
helpful to the physicians; particularly monitoring the cardiac and
system”, Biomedical Circuits and Systems Conference (BioCAS 2006),
