Health related sensors for Intel Galileo? Possibly I2C sensors?

Hi there,

I recently got an Intel Galileo board and I am completely new to Arduino. I have an interest in setting up some basic health related sensors on the board such as

  1. heart pulse
  2. GSR (sweating)
  3. ECG
  4. EMG
  5. blood pressure
  6. breathing rate

I have been reading that the GPIO speeds on the Galileo are slower than Arduino board thus making some sensors difficult to connect to the board. The e-health sensor shield also does not work.

I was wondering if anybody could point me in the right direction in terms of setting up some of these basic sensors on a galileo? I was thinking perhaps sensors that have an I2C interface?

Many thanks

sparkfun has a nice selection of sensors

You won't find them all for I2C though. It depends.
