Logan Porter, MS; Vijay Vaidyanathan, PhD

The advances in wireless technology and popularity of smart phones, coupled with their potential for various applications, haveled to an increase in telemedicine research and development. This study examines one such application in telemedicine by developing a compact wireless electrocardiogram device that utilizes software to visually display the waveform locally on a computer and also facilitates remote visibility of the waveform via webpage and Android phone application. The purpose of the system is to serve as a means for a doctor or physician to remotely view information of a patient away from a hospital setting.This system allows for a patient tobe at comfortin their home environment while providing health vital information, such as the electrocardiogram, to medical personnel.
