Stroke Center Heart Rate Data Acquisition

Conference paper
Part of the IFMBE Proceedings book series (IFMBE, volume 62)


The advancement of embedded system technologies, sensing techniques and wireless technologies provide new possibilities to monitor human activities at all times. This paper focuses on Heart Rate Data acquisition and management as a part of the Stroke Center project which is currently being developed. Non-intrusive wearable heart rate sensors monitor patients and detect abnormal situations. Data is analyzed and sent in real time in order to provide necessary help when it is needed. The Stroke Center framework is briefly described in this paper with guidelines for future work.
