Abstract
Pulse Tracer uses photoplethysmography (PPG) to remotely measure the heart and respiratory rates of primarily immobile elderly patients who are often left unattended. Our goal for this device is to provide a way to accurately measure the heart and respiratory rates of patients and to detect significant variations from the average values in an attempt to alert caregivers of possible emerging health conditions. This technology will provide patients the ability to live in their own homes while still having a professional caregiver monitor their health.The documentation provides detailed specifications for the functions and requirements of the Pulse Tracer at three design stages, specifically the Proof of Concept, Prototype, and Final Product. We also provide an overview of the device and list the specific requirements of the system and outline various engineering standards that the Pulse Tracer must conform to and will discuss safety and sustainability concerns of the product.
