We wanted to design a medical instrument that could be used to monitor a students stress levels using their heart rate. Our Electrocardiogram (ECG) Backpack is equipped with an ECG sensor that will track a patient’s heart rate, and provide live feedback in the shape of an LED light and Bluetooth phone application. The ECG Backpack will alert the user with an LED when their stress levels are too high compared to a preset resting heart rate. The data from the mobile application can also be exported to Excel where further analysis can be carried out.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
