Abstract

A very low-power consumption wireless system for monitoring ECG (ElectroCardioGram) is proposed. It consists of ECG detector/transmitter located on the chest and the relay transmitter placed at the wrist. Between the detector part and relay transmitter, the signal is send as the AC micro current flown through the tissue of the body. Since this method obtains very low-power signal transmission of about 8μW(400mVRMS × 20μARMS), the system can be driven by very small power source like a thin film battery. The similar wireless transmission method can be applied for other medical signal/data sensing micro systems sharing the same relay transmitter.
