Analysis of different Heart Rate Measuring Sensors with Arduino and Smartphone

Authors(3) :-Swapnil G. Deshpande, Dr. Vilas M. Thakare, Dr. Pradeep K. Butey

This paper discuss about Arduino based heart rate measuring techniques using easy pulse sensor and pulse sensor. Heart rate monitoring and counting is performed using different software tools. The proposed framework collects input from pulse sensor by placing the patientsí finger on the sensor. Then it is processed using Arduino to count the number of pulses and display the output in the smartphone via Bluetooth application. By using this framework physical presence of doctor is not needed at the time of measuring the heart rate. Such a system could be used in hospitals, for home-care, and people suffering from heart diseases.
