The Kompression Shirt

Date created
Heart disease is one of the world's most common illnesses, with 9 out of 10 Canadians suffering from at least 1 risk factor [1]. It is an epidemic of vast proportions that has no signs of slowing.  Kardiographic Medical Solutions is a brand new company created by four engineers from Simon Fraser University committed to finding solutions for early diagnosis and treatment of cardiac conditions. KMS plans on developing a new product capable of recording a 4-lead electrocardiogram during rest and active states for early detection of heart abnormalities and arrhythmias. This document will present the requirements necessary for building a new body wear wellness device, Kompression; a form fitting compression shirt with an embedded EKG system.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440.  Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem.  This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
