Project title: Amrita Spandanam

Research Area :  Smart Healthcare

A low-cost, low-power wearable ECG-monitoring monitoring framework that utilizes wireless body sensors, mobile phones and web browsers for monitoring cardiac patients who are in remote areas. The device can be worn either as a necklace or as a belt and continuously monitors and analyzes a patient’s ECG. The ECG data is sent over wireless networks, in real-time, to the patient’s cardiologist/doctor, with alerts if a patient requires examination. The prototype version of the Amrita Spandanam was unveiled by the current Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi on September 27th, 2013.
