Hello, I have no experience with these Arduino units or programing. However, I am interested in making a shirt that monitors my heart-rate and wirelessly sends the signal to a unit with a color (backlit) display on my handlebars that also tracks air temp, altitude, incline, speed, and possibly GPS capabilities. Additionally it would be nice to integrate some form of flexible electo-luminescent material into the shirt for safely reasons.
Below is a link for an electrocardiogram schematic that might help. I am looking at the top portion of the article as I would like to monitor my full spectrum cardio performance over terrain and altitude.http://www.cypress.com/?docID=28767
A few things to consider.
- perspiration might be an issue
- weight and overall profile must be minimal
- flexibility and comfort will also have to be considered
If I can get a general parts list and suggestions I can do the rest. Additionally, I would be happy to share credit with any contributors. and post my results on the forum.
Thank you all for your help
