Wearable Sensor for Real-Time Monitoring of Exercise Routines
HeartWays (Advanced solution for Supporting Cardiac Patients in Rehabilitation) is a research project financed during the 7th Framework Programme under the call “Research for SMEs”. In the HeartWays framework, a part of the research related to wearable sensors is presented in this paper. Different subsystems are described for the monitoring of a set of biomedical and dynamic data: ECG, heart rate, pulse-oximetry data (SpO2 and BPM), skin conductivity, body temperature, three-axis wrist displacement. All the data are wirelessly sent to the data gateway to be used for activities and exercise remote monitoring. Architectures of subsystems are described and qualitative results of performance of the newly developed sensors are shown. Finally, further implementations and improvements are discussed.
