Pushup Trainer Using Atmega1284

For our ECE 4760 final project, we choose to develop an electronic push-up trainer that could monitor people's movement, provide training package to optimize their push-up exercise and body health. A distance meter will be used to figure out whether the posture of the person is correct or not, and the touch screen used will be either an input and output device. It will take command and push-up input from us ...

Thermistor Respiratory Monitor Using Atmega1284

Our final project for ECE 4760 is a respiratory monitor that was designed for low-resource environments. The device calculates a patient's breathing rate by detecting changes in temperature when the patient breathes through a mask. Features of the device include an alarm through a piezoelectric speaker which goes off when the patient stops breathing, and a low-battery indicator signal when the battery power ...

Solar Powered Pulse Oximeter and Heart Rate Meter Using Atmega644

Introduction Pulse Oximeter is a non-invasive medical diagnostic device used to detect the oxygen saturation of the blood. Heart rate meter detects the number of beats per minute of the patient, normally referred to as bpm. The pulse oximeter is designed using an infrared and a red LED, projected alternatively on the finger and detection of the transmitted light by a photodiode/phototransistor. The output o ...

Digital Stethoscope Using Atmega644

"A digital stethoscope that can amplify, play, and record heart signals in real-time." Project Soundbyte The purpose of this project was to design and implement a digital stethoscope to serve as a platform for potential computer aided diagnosis (CAD) applications for the detection of cardiac murmurs. The system uses a custom-built sensor to capture heart sounds at 8 kHz and converts them to electrical signa ...

Heart Rate Display LED T-Shirt Using Atmega644

Introduction We have designed and built a LED t-shirt capable of displaying the heart rate of the wearer via a pulsing LED heart. Largely, our project consists of two components: the plethysmograph and the LED display. How we came up with the Idea We had thought up the idea of a heart rate display led shirt when we came across the LED shirt manufactured by Erogear©. Erogear sells customized wearable led dis ...

Haptic Exercise Coach Using Atmega644

Introduction The goal of this project was to assist the user in learning the proper technique for a physical exercise, in our case a dumbbell bicep curl. As our understanding of biology and anatomy improves, the design of physical exercises is improved by the application of scientific principals and experimental results. For each exercise there is a known pace and kinematic pattern that yields optimal resul ...

Tissue Impedance Digital Biopsy Using Atmega644

Introduction Our project measures and analyzes the electromechanical properties of tissue using a probe containing a microarray of electrodes, to aid as a tool in predicting the health of the tissue sample. “Despite significant efforts to develop early detection strategies for breast cancer, the diagnostic efficiency remains poor. Approximately 1 million breast biopsies are performed annually as directed by ...
