“A safe and quick way to measure someone’s heart rate.”

Elevator Pitch

For our final project in Electronic Bioinstrumentation, we extended our knowledge from previous labs and added to what previous labs had required in order to design a dry contact (gel less) electrode ECG sensor. The idea for this project is to provide a safe and simple method of measuring someone’s heart rate without any electrode gel. This idea was chosen because of our previous labs which measured EMG and ECG from wet contact. This intrigued us to pursue an ECG project that would require a user to just touch a metal bar without putting on electrodes or gel.
