WEARABLE HEALTHCARE DEVICE FOR PREGNANT WOMEN
Keywords:Vital parameters- physical activity, sleeps quality, heart activity, body temperature.
Human resource is the backbone of developing and under developed nations. In developing nations like India, rural areas are more when compared to the cities. People in rural areas are not really concerned about their health, because of unavailability of hospitals in the nearby areas and also they need to travel long distance even for small injuries and routine checkups. Pregnant women from rural areas dont do their regular checkups at the early stage of pregnancy. The mobile application can access this information and can check for emergency condition.. The project aim is to design a connected wearable healthcare device to monitor pregnant women health status continuously and provide timely alert as they go about their everyday lives. The device has sensors built into it to provide vital health data of the mother in the later stages of pregnancy. While detecting an abnormal event the device issues alert to the family members and doctors by communicating with a custom smartphone app over internet and can also send e-mail to them. An emergency button helps the mother to call for help.The device monitors the mothers physical activity, sleeps quality, heart activity and infrared body temperature helping the doctor to analyze the condition. Heart rate is measured by an optical heart rate sensor circuitry. Respiration rate sensor enables to measure the breathing rate by detecting changes in temperature when the patient breathes in and out. A 3-axis MEMS accelerometer sensor helps to know the daily body activity of the monitored women.
