uECG instruction update

A project log for uECG - a very small wearable ECG

It's cheap, doesn't use a specialized heart rate AFE and can blink LEDs with your pulse :)

While the shop is in last stages of development, we uploaded a new instruction for uECG! After sending first devices to Ingiegogo backers, it was time to seriously update the instruction section, cause it only contained information about the firmware. It now has 8 steps - for complete experience, we added lots of pictures and a video:

The instruction contains info about uECG kits, but it's also useful if you want to assemble your own uECG or just interested in the device, its parts and how everything works. 

The first step is unpacking - we decided to show in detail what you receive if you order uECG. The second and third steps are power on and usage - turning on the device and placing it on the chest. Simple actions, but better to show them. Step 4 - using the app: we uploaded the app on Google Play and now you can download it (it’s free, of course) and use it to receive data from uECG on the phone. Steps 5 and 6 are power off and charge. And then, steps 7 and 8 - firmware update, showing how to connect the STLink programmer and pogo pins, and the firmware upload process itself.
Feedback is very important to us, so please write in the comments if you have thoughts or questions (especially if you already have uECG :)

In the meantime, here’s a video instruction showing how everything works:
