Physical LayoutHand UnitChest UnitWaist UnitThigh UnitSam2Project DescriptionWireless monitoring pulse oximeter, blood oxygen concentration (SpO2) and fall detectionConsists of four unitsReceiving Display unit (RDU)3 Transmitting Sensor Units (TSU)All units will be worn by the patientFinger sensor will obtain pulse and SpO2 and transmitChest and thigh sensor will determine patients posture informationWaist display will receive data, display data, and transmit emergency signals Sam3GoalsUltimately to monitor patients for chronic heart and related health conditionsRemotely contact emergency services Provide location to emergency services of patient More affordable than existing wireless unitsIdeal for a variety of usersMaximum protection at minimal to no cost Sam4ObjectivesTransmitting Sensor Units (TSU)To be worn on the finger, wrist, chest and right thighBattery poweredControl the pulse oximeter sensorMake calculations to achieve pulse and oxygen concentration dataDetermine the posture of the patientMeasure patients angular velocity and accelerationMonitor units battery lifeTransmit data wirelessly to the waist unit (RDU)

Receiving Display Unit (RDU)Receive data wirelessly from TSUsDisplay patients pulse and oxygen concentrationContact emergency servicesMonitor units battery lifeAudible and visual alerts for critical conditions, loss of signal and battery life, and display personal informationSam5Pulse OximeterNon-invasive optical measurement of heart rate and blood oxygen saturation Hemoglobin is the red colored substance in blood and is the carrier of oxygenRed and infrared light are attenuated less by the body tissues and more by blood (600nm, 940nm)Light shines through finger and strikes a photodiode, which creates a very small current based on the amount of light incident on the photodiodeThis determine attenuation of light based on the output of the photodiode

Sam6SensorGenerate alternating pulses of light at 600nm (red) and 940nm (infrared)Photodiode must detect light in the range of 600nm to 940nmConvert photodiode current to voltages values between 0V to 2.3VAccuracy of 2% (70% - 100%)2 BPM for pulseTransmit a maximum of 10 ftMCUTwo DACs 12-bitsThree ADCs 12-bits12 GPIOsPulse Oximeter DesignSam7 Pulse Oximeter Subsystem

Sam8To calculate pulse oximetry the photodiode current must be converted to a voltageThis voltage has both a DC and AC component that represents attenuation of lightDC-constant volume of blood used for auto gain controlAC ebbing and flowing of blood used for measurementsPulse-Ox Sensor

The recommended thresholds are influenced by a persons profile (e.g. height, weight, age.)

The uses-permission function is needed in order to use Bluetooth features in any application. This is required to perform different types of communication such as requesting and accepting connections, and transferring data.

The mBluetoothAdapter function is needed for any and all Bluetooth activity. It represents the Bluetooth adapter, or Bluetooth radio, and is used for the entire system.

The REQUEST_ENABLE_BT function is to ensure that the Bluetooth is enabled. If the Bluetooth on the device is set off, this function prompts the user to enable Bluetooth through the system settings without stopping the application. Bluetooth;mBluetoothAdapter = BluetoothAdapter.getDefaultAdapter();startActivityForResult(enableIntent, REQUEST_ENABLE_BT);


The startDiscovery() function searches and scans for other dvices. The scanning of devices takes about 12 seconds to complete and scans constantly.

The REQEST_CONNECT_DEVICE function is needed to actually connect to two devices. This is enabled by using the Bluettoth service socket which accepts a connection request and performs the connection.

The callIntent function allows the android application to make a phone call. The number is preset is this function.

BluetoothmBtAdapter.startDiscovery();startActivityForResult(serverIntent, REQUEST_CONNECT_DEVICE);startActivity(callIntent);
