Corpsman Up vitals monitor using Propeller chip

Here’s a project for remote monitoring of heart rate (and potentially other medical/sensor info) using Propeller chips and XBee modules. Nick Ernst has published his plans and code for the Corpsman Up Vitals Monitoring System on the Parallax website. The system consists of two units: a base which is equipped with a Parallax Propeller MCU and a uOLED information display, A/D converter and three corresponding LEDs that indicate battery life of the unit. The remote units are designed using the Propeller Spin Stamp MCU which takes the sensor reading from a Polar T34 Heart Rate Monitor and receiver unit and relays it to the base using an Xbee RF module. (We note that Parallax indicates the Spin Stamp module is in the end-of-life production stage.)
