Health+ was created for those with heart issues, to keep track of somebody's heart rate and alert the user when the heart rate becomes irregular speed.

Sketch Prototype

This is a sketch of our first prototype of what we wanted for the outcome of our final design.


Project Objectives

The objective of this project was to create a heart rate monitor that detects the user's beats per minute (BPM) and notify's the user when the heart rate becomes irregular. Throughout this project, two somatic senses were focused on; visual, and auditory. Materials used were an Arduino Uno, a breadboard, female and male wires, an LED light bulb, an LCD screen, and a pulse sensor. We hooked up the pulse sensor, LCD screen, and breadboard to the Arduino Uno. We then hooked up the LED light to the breadboard that was connected to the Arduino Uno.

Somatic Sense 1: Visual

For the visual aspect, we had a pulse sensor that detected the heart rate through the user's finger and displayed the BPM on a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) screen. We also had an LED light programmed to turn red if the heart rate was below 60 BPM or above 130 BPM.


Somatic Sense 2: Auditory

Our group also created a prototype app that notifies the user's emergency contact when the heart rate becomes irregular speed. It includes the auditory sense because when the user's heart rate becomes too high or too low, the emergency contact's phone would have an alarm that would be set off.

App Prototype

The objective of the app is to connect to the heart rate monitor that has features that would send notifications to the users and to their emergency contact as well as send updated information to health care providers. Settings were also created where the user could change the accessibility of the brightness of the  LED light and audio for the alarm.
