increasingly growing rate of technological advances, new engineering
concepts and methods can be implemented in a way to meet the needs of
doctors and patients around the world. Team Evolution has taken on the
challenge of contributing an innovative new monitoring system in order to
ameliorate the lives of patients and increase the efficiency of a doctorís
time and effort. The monitoring system is known as a Wireless PDA Interfaced
Wearable Cardiotachometer. This system will monitor a patientís
electrocardiogram (ECG) and blood pressure readings noninvasively for
twenty-four hours, save the information onto a compact flash memory card,
and send the information wirelessly to a personal digital assistant (PDA)
from which a doctor may view the dayís records of the patients readings.
sponsoring company for the project is Texas Instruments ( T I ).
The project is funded with the intention of improving home medical care.
project advisor is Homer Nazeran PhD.
