Low Power, Low Cost, Wireless ECG Holter Monitor

A wireless Holter monitor–small enough to fit on the back side of an electrode–provides more accurate signals than traditional designs because noise and interference are greatly reduced. The circuit is inexpensive and capable of providing diagnostic-quality 1-lead ECG traces. A driven leg eliminates the need for a 60 Hz notch filter. Depending on the frequency band used, the transceiver (the ADF702x is shown below) and its surrounding circuitry will change. Patient comfort and privacy is greatly improved because all circuitry can be worn under clothing.
