Reza Naima, a bioengineering student from University of California, San Diego, has uploaded a video of his thesis project to YouTube. Called the Pervasive Health Monitor, it’s a Bluetooth-enabled, TI MSP430-based microcontroller board (1.4″ x 1.8″) designed to be worn on a person to monitor various vitals. Reza explains:

It’s meant to be worn 24/7, and will record a wide variety of biometric data such as your ECG, EMG, GSR, body temperature, body noises, pulse oximetry. It’s Bluetooth enabled and stores data on a tiny Transflash memory card.

More details on his website, including a schematic of the device.
