Homemade Electrocardiogram with the chipKIT Wi-FIRE

Making a difference is something many aspire to do. Making a difference with electronics is something an engineer can do. This Instructable by  chronicles their endeavor to make a stand-alone and feature-packed homemade electrocardiogram. This project uses the chipKIT Wi-FIRE platform to undertake this ambitious project. 

This project still seems to be in development, so there isn’t a comprehensive list of items you’ll need yet. You will definitely need a chipKIT Wi-FIRE. Additionally, you’ll need a variety of sensors, filters, and wires.

You’ll start by configuring an input receiver and converter so that the device an correctly register and interpret signals from the heart, converting it from an analog to digital signal that’s comprehensible to the Wi-FIRE. Later, steps will be added for mainframe signal processing and interpreting and then for data transmission.

We look forward to seeing the finished project!
