As I present to you last Tuesday, I have a project of a portative electrocardiogram (called Holter in medicine field).
This device is really important to diagnose critical heart diseases and to monitor the patients who are already diagnosed.
Nowadays, Holter are really expensive and are not comfortable for the patient. Moreover, some important improvements with low-cost technology can be made to have a better security for emergencies cases like infarct.
Cardiologists that I met during my market research seemed really enthusiastic about my idea, so it's very motivating to know that our project can be useful.
I will work on this project fulltime next year, so I have already do researches and have an idea of what cardiologists and patients want. However, I really need a team to share skills and motivation! Maybe you could continue with me after the summer school and be part of my entrepreneurship project.
There will be Arduino, programming, and textile design!
If you want to see the first prototype that I and my friends did 6 months ago to have an idea of what it looks like (sorry it's in French) : http://www.lopendoc.org/lopenlab/projets/wireless-ecg-ecg-portatif/
Please, feel free to ask me questions if you want to know more in details what I want to do.
See you soon
