A project log for Medicycle - Urban Responder

We are living in the future, Medics now need motorbikes to navigate our congested cities but they no longer need two wheels

A “MediCycle” needs a medical pack obviously…………………….

Cooking Hacks ( produce a biometric shield for Arduino and Raspberry Pi: the e-Health Sensor Platform V2.0.

The e-Health Sensor Shield V2.0 allows an Arduino user to perform biometric and medical applications where body monitoring is needed by using up to 10 different sensors.

This information can be used to monitor in real-time the state of a patient.

Initially we will look at 4 basic medical parameters by having sensors in a pack built into the nose of the MediCycle.

The leads and sensors for the following parameters will emerge from the front compartment of the MediCycle and be attached to the nearby patient:

  1. Blood pressure,
  2. Electrocardiogram (ECG),
  3. Oxygen saturation (SpO2),
  4. Heart rate.

The data will be sent to the MediCycle rider via a pair of XBees (short-range wireless data transmitters) and displayed on the wearable display in front of the right eye.

The data will also be sent via GPRS/3G mobile phone network over the web so it can be viewed remotely by a physician.
