Abstract

Pulse rate is usually checked to estimate overall health and fitness level of the heart. For the most part, the heart rate should be monitored continuously for the patients with heart problems for instance bradycardia or tachycardia. So for continuous monitoring of pulse rate is achieved through photoplethysmography (PPG) which has a drawback of surrounding lights interference. The proposed technique uses a wrist pulse sensor with a resonator which transmit RF signal to the major artery. The RF signal gets reflected from the walls of the radial artery which is sensed by the resonator Antennae. This system shows better results when compared to PPG.
