Easy Pulse heart rate sensor

Posted on Thursday, September 20th, 2012 in project logs by DP

Easy Pulse is a heart rate monitor using an IR LED and a light detector:

Easy Pulse provides a reflective IR sensor with necessary instrumentation circuit to illustrate the principle of photoplethysmography as a noninvasive technique for measuring heart rate. In order for this sensor to work, the fingertip should be placed gently over the sensor and be kept still. The sensor may also be wired to the board through a 4-pin jumper and header pins.

    Hello,
    I am working on a similar project.
    if you are interested mail me. So can talk in detailed!

  • Drone: So these go for around $330 USD and NO published calibration procedure online or otherwise? Given what's inside - I don't think I'll be considering...
