Heart rate monitor

Arduino-based heart rate monitor that emphasizes how annoying heart problems can be.

Autonomic Nervous System Disorder

While this disorder does not have the word "heart" in it, it does affect the heart rate. Standing for long periods of time can become an exercise, and sometimes the body cannot function as intended because of this. 


Users strap a heart rate monitor to their left index finger. It reads the user's heart rate and the piezo buzzer, LED lights, and LCD screen change to show if the user should "chill out". 



Keeping track of your heart rate can be tedious if you don't have the financial means to buy the latest "Fit Technology" on the market. By being bulky and loud, this gadget represents my personal experience with monitoring my heart rate.
