(KL-502) Patient's Gait Cycle Analysis over Lab-view

This project propose a gait analysis based on wearable sensors controlled remotely in order to monitor, track and evaluate the motion gait analysis in people. The main objective of this project is to develop a LabVIEW VI for obtaining gait pattern of an individual and also provides study on different patient having abnormal gait or suffering in pain for normal gait.

AVR/Arduino Microcontroller based hardware simulating  is developed, which consists of  FSR pressure sensors,  bending flex sensors, an Accelerometer. The sensors are placed on various position on the knee and ankle of both the hand and leg. The gait pattern and the digital gait values are obtained. The gait values are monitored digitally in LCD. The microcontroller collects the data from the sensor and sends the data to LabVIEW software. The LabVIEW software will process the obtained signal and monitor it in the waveform chart. The gait pattern is monitored continuously using microcontroller. The obtained signal is transmitted to the USB Port of computer through an USB to UART module.

 A group of users can be chosen with the aim of executing two modalities: natural walking and dragging the foot as well as hand and various joints in body. The gait is parameterized with the various positions : as far as pressure sensors are concerned, one position of pressure sensor under the first metatarsal , another one under the fifth metatarsal (left) and a third one under the heel are placed. With respect to bending sensors, one position for bending sensor is placed for the ankle movement and another one for the foot sole.

(KL-507) Patient Health Monitor and Alert Over RF Wireless System

This project is aimed to design a wireless communication system that keeps a track of remote patient’s health parameter such as body temperature, Heart rate and displays it to doctor by using RF communication. Usually a doctor or an attendant has to regularly keep a check for the patient’s critical parameters thus, this task becomes tedious after sometime.
Hence, the system is used to read remote patients temperature and heart beat using a digital sensor interfaced to microcontroller and sends it to remote PC using RF Wireless communication.

The project design involves an advance microcontroller interfaced to digital temperature and heartbeat. The microcontroller continuous read the measured data by the sensor and encodes the readings and sends it to remote receiver by RF over the air using an RF module.
The receiver decodes the data and sends it to PC Terminal window that displays it on PC screen. Hence, the doctor can continuously keep a check on the patients reading Viewing on PC through RF receiver wirelessly.

 The functioning of heart rate measurement is based on the truth that the blood circulates for every one heart beat which can be sensed by using a circuit formed by the combination of an IR LED and Photo diode. Depending upon the rate of circulation of blood per second the heart beat rate per minute is calculated. The temperature is read by the ADC (Analog to Digital Converter) module of the microcontroller Unit. This ADC data is processed and converted into the actual temperature reading by the microcontroller. When the sensing parameter cross the limit set by user, it alerts the same by displaying on local LCD. There are push buttons provided through which the user can set the desirable limit range of heart rate and temperature.

 Further, this project can be enhanced by involving more critical parameter monitoring and can be enhanced also by involving TCP/IP enable internet connection and wi-fi module for global monitoring on web page.

(KL-508) Physiological Patient's body Parameter Monitor and Alert using Android Application

In this modern era of technologies, it is essential to have monitoring systems especially for security or health purposes. Many hospitals are lacking in real time patient monitoring systems and they check physiological parameters manually using various instruments. Therefore monitoring these parameters becomes a tedious process and could lead to death.

 

The main objective is to design and simulate a wireless system which can help with real time monitoring in multiple patient’s physiological parameters. This system can monitor several physiological parameters at a time including pulse rate, body temperature, hemo globin level(SPO2) and blood pressure continuously.

 

Remotely monitoring a patient encouraged by many doctors in their too much busy schedule. Therefore, to avoid over loading a doctor, he/she should be provided with the latest readings of his/her patients. Only abnormality is reported to the doctor and if no report is received, normality is assumed. Efficient monitoring requires live comparison of the values reported and stored in memory. For the sake of facilitation, the system is capable of monitoring multiple patients at one instant and measuring five vital signs for better diagnosis. All information is transferred to the micro-controller. This microcontroller board analyses data and if any abnormality is observed, it sends warning and emergency messages to a doctor.

 

The reporting process is made through Bluetooth wireless android operate smart phone and the values transmitted, also shown at the very place where patient is kept. Doctor can analyse all the patients' statuses inside and outside the hospital.
