The Berkeley Tricorder: wireless health monitoring
The advancement of precision micropower amplifiers, microcontrollers, and MEMs devices have allowed for a paradigm shift from traditionally large and costly health monitoring equipment only found in hospitals or care centers to smaller, wireless, low powered portable devices that can provide continuous monitoring for a number of applications. Along these lines, we have developed a small wireless health monitoring device, named The Berkeley Tricorder, capable of monitoring a wide range of health-related signals, and have vetted it in a number of human trials. We will present a number of different real-time visualization tools that have been developed, and discuss some relevant applications for the Tricorder as a platform. Real time wireless telemetry from the device will be demonstrated.
