PULSE
PULSE

Kinetic loading pendant for the ECG surveillance. Conceptual idea of a small mobile ECG device in the shape of a pendant for the medical surveillance of the heartbeat and the pulse rate. In case of an overload of the pulse rate or irregular heartbeat an alert signal is ringing out. At the same time the conspicuous ECG recordings were saves on a miniSD memory card. Later on the user has the possibility to obtain and analyse the stored ECG recording, if necessary get in contact with a doctor. Basic idea is the internal power supply through kinetic energy.Generally oriented for people who don’t want to look like they depend on medical equipment.
