MetadataShow full item record
This paper proposes a device capable of acquiring an electrocardiogram (ECG, EKG) signal to be hosted by a typical Android smartphone. Bluetooth is used as the data connection. Once acquired, the signal is graphed on the display of the smartphone. A basis of physiology behind the ECG is presented. The data acquisition system and the performance of the ECG amplification and supporting circuits are analyzed.
