Health monitoring has always been a promising application for the Internet of Things (IoT). By using the right technology we no longer have to depend on our general routine health check-up or our local physicians to assess our body. Sensors can be used to measure all your body vitals and this information can be shared remotely in real-time for a doctor from other parts of the world to diagnosis you or perhaps an AI could crunch all the numbers and diagnosis your problem.

Sounds futuristic, right?

But we are gradually moving towards it and we are not very far from having remote IoT Robotic Arms performing surgery on us.

Previously we built IoT Based Heartbeat Monitoring System using Raspberry Pi.

While we progress with that, in this session, we will build a wearable Arduino heart rate monitor to measure the heart rate of a remote patient.”
