Abstract

Recent advancements in wearable medical technologies have streamlined health monitoring with simple, non-invasive measurements. These devices, however, are rarely capable of monitoring all the necessary parameters for an accurate measure of health, such as blood pressure, and can cost the user hundreds to thousands of dollars. The objective of this project was to design an affordable, user-friendly, wearable device capable of monitoring multiple parameters: body temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, blood oxygen, and body positioning. By combining wearable sensors with Inter-Integrated Circuit (I2C) technology, the data from many sensors can be transmitted while maintaining a compact size for a wearable. In parallel with this device, a mobile application was designed as an interface to receive real-time comprehensive measurements. This device could be used to reduce monitor application time in emergency medical settings and monitor patients in rural communities who are often hours away from the nearest medical centers.
