Passive Wireless Heart-Rate Sensor


We have developed a low-cost device that can wirelessly detect a beating heart over a short distance (1m) and does not require any sensor placed on the person's body. This device can be used for wireless medical/health applications as well as security and safety applications, such as automobile/truck drivers as well as ATM machines. We have also created a small battery-powered version of this sensor that can be worn on a person's clothing but does not require touching the person's skin.
