Android Based ECG Monitoring System

Ayaz Akram | Raheel Javed | Awais Ahmad

Abstract: This document presents the development of a low power and portable ECG monitoring device based on MSP430 microcontroller and an Android Phone. This work is done in order to provide a reliable solution for cardiovascular patients who can help them analyze their ECG easily. There are many implementations of ECG monitoring devices at present but most of them are built using custom integrated ics. Moreover they are too expensive to be used in academic research and projects. An attempt is made to reduce cost and energy requirements and increase portability. This paper is divided into various sections. Section 1 discusses motivation behind this project. Section 2 puts light on ECG signals and noise which can corrupt an ECG signal. Section 3 describes design of Analog Front End of this project. Section 4 discusses software which is embedded into microcontroller and finally Section 5 explains the development of Android ECG app for this project.
