Heart Beat Monitoring System Using Light-Fidelity (Li-Fi)

Infymakers award sponsored by Infosys-Heart Beat Monitoring System Using Light-Fidelity (Li-Fi)- won a cash award of Rs. 5 lakhs

Usually Wi-Fi is used to monitor the patients. Wi-Fi uses RF that causes health vulnerabilities. Some people claim they are hypersensitive to radio frequencies and are looking for an alternative. Li-Fi is a good solution to this problem. The number of heart beat per minute should be 72 for a normal human. The regularity of BPM is important for heart patients. The heart beat can be continuously monitored and sent to the receiver using Li-Fi technology. Light-Fidelity supports innumerable applications. There is a very high scope for wireless communication in the medical field. There are many devices that work on Wi-Fi such as infusion pumps, defibrillators, monitors, lung ventilators and anesthesia machine. To develop a system that detects the heart rate of a bed-ridden patient. The heart rate can be viewed through the mobile using the Li-Fi technology. The system is used to find whether the heart pulse of a patient is regular.
