Hi, I´m Franco and this is my final project for TC1017.
Cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of death worldwide. These problems affect a lot of kids as well. Cardiovascular diseases in kids mean that they cannot do activities that require a high level of exercise for a prolonged period of time, like running or playing outside. It would be easier for parents to take care of their kid´s health if they could oversee their kid´s heart rate easily.
My solution to this problem was to create a wearable light feedback monitor that constantly measures the patient’s pulse and emits a light at the same rhythm.
As it is intended for kids (cool kids), I made it in the form of Ironman´s arc reactor and big enough for parents to see it at a distance.
It is a completely original design. I designed the hardware, the electrical circuit, and the code.
