New e-Health Biometric Sensor Platform for Arduino and Raspberry Pi

Cooking Hacks, the open hardware division of Libelium, a wireless sensor networks platform provider for Smart Cities solutions, has released a new e-Health sensor platform to give the maker Community tools that use Arduino and Raspberry Pi open source hardware platforms to monitor patients’ conditions.

The new e-Health sensor platform adds sensing capability for nine different biometric parameters, such as pulse, blood pressure, oxygen in blood (SPO2), electrocardiogram (EKG), airflow, glucometer, galvanic skin response (GSR), patient position and body temperature, to give the Arduino and Raspberry Pi Community a way to develop new e-Health applications and products.

The e-Health Sensor Platform was designed by Cooking Hacks to help researchers and developers measure biometric sensor data for experimentation, fun and test purposes.

“We aim to give the Arduino and Raspberry Pi community a platform to develop quick proof-of-concept projects as the basis of a new era of open source medical products," said David Gascón, CTO of Libelium. “Cooking Hacks provides a cheap, open alternative compared to the proprietary and price-prohibitive medical market solutions available, to inspire makers to develop new applications that help people thrive.”

Such information can be used to monitor a patient’s state or to collect sensitive data to be analyzed for medical diagnosis. Using different wireless protocols—such as Wi-Fi, 3G and Bluetooth—the information can be sent to a laptop computer, a smartphone or directly to the Cloud for subsequent analysis. Cooking Hacks has designed iPhone and Android applications to view the real-time information gathered with the platform. In addition, the e-Health platform comes with an integrated video and photo camera for image diagnosis.

Thanks to the Raspberry Pi to Arduino Connection bridge and the arduPi library, especially designed to make any hardware designed for Arduino compatible with Raspberry Pi, the e-Heath Biometric Sensor shield is compatible with both platforms.

All the info about the e-Health Sensor Platform can be found here:
