ABSTRACT
A wearable computer with a simple electrocardiogram monitoring device and an accelerometer to measure femoral artery pulse was developed and deployed in the homes of 8 healthy individuals. These individuals participated in a variety of physical and mental tasks, and measurements were taken with this system. Data illustrated that the system could distinguish distinct changes between different activities. Such a system could be used to monitor a patient’s condition and alert when changes occur.
