The electronics industry is constantly focusing on creating cheaper, more portable electronics that integrate with smartphone technology and the increasing demand for affordable and effective medical instrumentation. This Major Qualifying Project aims to complete preliminary development of an inexpensive, accurate, portable, Bluetooth 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) that interfaces with any Android smartphone. The current market lacks in mobile ECGs for portable devices to use clinically and other portable ECGs are extremely expensive. This project aims to use a compact analog front-end board, an embedded processor with Bluetooth adapter, and generic Android smartphone to revolutionize the way the healthcare industry envisions portable 12-lead ECGs.
