Arduino-based Health Projects:

  • MySignals:
    Development platform for medical devices and eHealth applications. It measures more than 15 different biometric parameters. You can add your own sensors
    to build new medical devices.

  • IoT Based Health Care System:
    It provides a solution for measurement of body parameters like ECG, Temperature, Moisture, and Heartbeat. It also detects the body condition and location of the patients.

  • The Arduino101 way of Caregiving:
    Dealing with ill people or elderly at your home? No problem, here's the solution.

  • e-Care Heart:
    E-health Prototype System for Cardiac Telemonitoring.

  • Arduino Powered CPR Feedback Device:
    Adding real-time feedback to a CPR manikin. Allows for depth, rate, time and chest recoil monitoring.

  • Monitor ECG and Respiration:
    Hook up your Arduino to take a look at your ECG, respiration and heart rate.

  • Crying Baby Detector:
    Baby monitor that can also help put your baby back to sleep.

  • Cardiac Monitoring System:
    Heart rate monitoring system, using Arduino, that counts heartbeats in a minute. The system starts measuring the heartbeat once the finger is placed on the sensor.

  • Self-Stabilizing Spoon for Parkinson's Sufferers:
    Self-stabilizing spoon for Parkinson's sufferers who have difficulty eating on their own because of serious tremors.

  • Third Eye for The Blind:
    Third eye for blinds is an innovation which helps the blind people to navigate with speed and confidence by detecting the nearby obstacles using the help of ultrasonic waves and notify them with buzzer sound or vibration.

  • Health Band - A Smart Assistant for the Elderly:
    This health band can assist old people in their daily lives, leaving the family stress free!

  • Avoid Injuries with Smart Backpack:
    Smart Backpack helps you to avoid injuries caused by backpacks by alerting you about improper uses.

  • Personal Healthcare Assistant (PHA):
    Wearable for monitoring the health condition of patients who have suffered or are in risk of having a cardiac arrest.

  • Smart Health Kit:
    Creating E-health care system that allows easier, better, and faster communications between patients, doctors, and hospitals.

  • Controlling patient's fever with Artik & Arduino:
    This project consists of 2 devices. The first one is a wearable and monitors temperature, the second one will control the temperature.

  • Alzheimer's Assistant:
    A smartwatch with fall and location detection, reminders and more, designed to help you or your loved one with Alzheimer's!

  • ISBBM: Integrated Smart Belt for Blind's Mobility:
    An assistive belt with GPS and obstacles detector that can guide blind people.

  • BrainForce:
    A wireless headset which allows you to control devices through cerebral waves. It works with two sensors and a Bluetooth shield.

  • Sleep Quality Monitor:
    Monitor the quality of your sleep and live better.

  • Purdue ExoMIND Glove:
    The ExoMIND Glove is a stroke rehabilitation device used to generate biofeedback for physical therapists and patients.

  • LipSync:
    An assistive tech which allows quadriplegics to use touchscreen mobile devices using a mouth-operated joystick with sip and puff controls to simulate the actions of "tap" and hitting the back button, respectively. With longer sips and longer puffs, additional secondary features are enabled including a "tap and drag", "long tap and drag" and the possibility of more specialized functions as per the user's needs.
