Wireless bio sensing with mobile monitoring system

Personal tele-health solutions are believed to be important future instruments to tackle the global challenges of aging population and increasing costs for health care. Tiny and wireless connected medical sensors such as those embedded in clothes or onto the body become an integrated part of the lifestyle and will allow hospitals to remotely diagnose patients from their home.
In this thesis, a wireless bio-sensing system is proposed to provide a home-based healthcare service for continuous monitoring. This idea is based on Internet of things (IoT), where there is always someone who has information (server) and someone who needs that information (client).
This thesis work involves the designing of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) profile for the designed BLE capable ECG health sensor. With that BLE profile, a wireless communication and data transfer are possible. An iPhone Operating System (iOS) application is developed to connect to this health sensor and to get the data from the sensor. In addition to displaying the ECG waveform from the sensor, the smart phone’s GPS and accelerometer sensors are used to give location details, in detecting a patient’s fall and also alarming if the fall looks unusual. There is a facility to store these data for any given time for later use to perform further analysis.
