Abstract

In this project we will determine the feasibility of using motion from respiration to generate power for the circuits necessary to acquire and wireless transmit heart rate and respiration rate to a nearby receiver. Power generation will be based on electromagnetic induction. Circuitry will consist of a rectifier, a power conditioner, a system on a chip (SOC) and a wireless transmitter. Each subsystem will be designed to minimize power consumption. This work will provide the foundation for a comfortable, rugged, waterproof, low maintenance cardio/pulmonary strap.
