The Avrio Small Heart EKG is specifically designed to be used on small hearts, such as that of an infant. It should be noted, however, that prototype testing will be performed on the heart of rabbits. The Avrio Small Heart EKG uses custom built electrodes to effectively pick up weak electrical signals from a heart surface, and display an amplified, filtered, and analyzed version on a computer. Currently, the Avrio Small Heart EKG will be most widely used in a research setting to aid cardiologists understand arrhythmias in infants.
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.
