VSM Watch

General Description

The vital signs monitoring (VSM) watch, EVAL-HCRWATCH4Z, is a modular development, demonstration, and data collection platform for high performance vital signs monitoring applications based on Analog Devices, Inc. analog front ends and sensors. It is a wearable, battery-powered device which enables the continuous monitoring and on-demand spot check measurement of photople¬thysmography (PPG), electrodermal activity (EDA, bioimpedance-based), skin temperature, electrocardiography (ECG, biopotential based), and motion/activity (based on a 3 axis accelerometer). It allows for synchronized, multiparameter data storage on internal memory for later data retrieval and offline analysis and/or live monitoring on a PC (Windows® OS) or Android or iOS-based device.
