Heart Rate Monitoring using Flexible Printed Circuit Board

Download Project Document/Synopsis



Flexible circuit is a technology within which the electronic circuit is assembled by mounting electronic devices or sensors on flexible plastic substrates. They are well known globally as flex circuits, flexible printed circuit boards and much more. The characteristic of flexible electronics is that it not only reduces the cost but also, they have light weight, thinner, non-breakable and new forms to create many new applications. Flexible circuits don’t continually have to flex, they are often bonded to something rigid. They can additionally ‘flex to fit’, conforming to a curved design. Flexible electronics have recently attracted a lot of attention since they allow many promising applications. In this system, heart rate sensor is been mounted on the flexible plastic substrates. It is powered by Atmega 328 microcontroller, it consists of LCD, heart rate sensor and battery. This heart rate monitoring system can be used to check heart rate of the patients, just by placing it on hands. For some patients with a potential heart disease, wearing this flexible PCB heartrate checking circuit, would allow them to constantly measure their heart’s condition.
