Towards a wearable device for monitoring health of athletes

2019 — CLIHC '19: Proceedings of the IX Latin American Conference on Human Computer Interaction

Continuous health monitoring has become essential for improving people's quality of life, either by medical prescription or personal control. Our objective is to develop a wearable device for real-time monitoring of patients breathing patterns and heart rate while performing physical exercise at high-intensity intervals; the wearable device incorporates vital signs sensors to register and display their data in a mobile application, to help users track their health and at the same time receive alerts if the signals exceed their normal range.
