Top 20 Arduino-based Health Projects

Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It started in 2003 in Italy as a research project and its goal was to create simple, low cost tools for creating digital projects by non-engineers.

Arduino is used sometimes with Raspberry Pi for prototyping, If you are looking for Raspberry Pi Medical and Healthcare IoT projects we have compiled a list of top 15 projects that uses RaspberryPi.

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.

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!

  • 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.
