Resumen del proyecto:

The design and realisation of a novel intelligent and portable electrocardiograph device with a GPRS link for monitoring the heart activity of patients and the automatic detection and transmission of fundamental heart failures. This novel design will comprise several subsystems: microcontroller system for data signal analysis, communication subsystem including GPRS/GSM standard links and power subsystem. The main objective is to improve the quality of life of cardiology patients, as they have not to be confined in hospitals. They can feel free of walking or even travelling but keeping contact with their cardiology specialist or hospital. A direct and almost instant medical support is provided, as a voice channel is included in the GPRS connection
