Wearable Cardiac Monitoring
Arrhythmias, or irregular heartbeats, are a very common problem. In the United States alone, it is estimated that more than 850,000 people are hospitalized each year for arrhythmias. One of the most common arrhythmias is atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation is a quivering heart beat that can lead to serious issues such as blood clots and strokes. There are several existing products, such as Fitbits and Apple Watches, that are working towards being able to detect and alert users of possible atrial fibrillation. This project looks into how to improve existing technology as well as how to modify it to detect other forms of arrhythmias.
