Hi!

I'm making a bluetooth heart rate monitoring system as well, for narcolepsy patients. I'd love to know if you found anything! Please let me know if it is working out.

Thank you very much Steven!!!
I have searched for about month to find such a device!
Have you used it, do you know how much it costs?

I buy all my bluetooth devices from http://www.mybluegadgets.com/ and not sure if they have a heart monitor but take a look.

Hi,

Just to mention, that FRWD has opened their B-series bluetooth protocol, including heart rate (also RR-values, barometric altitude, temperaturem GPS related parameters etc.).

Hi everyone, I'm developing a heart rate monitor system, can anyone tell me how to make the communication between the bluetooth heart rate sensor and the computer? What are the best sensors to use and the best software tools (if there is one) to make this?

Thanks a lot!

A heart rate monitor is a personal monitoring device that allows a subject to measure their heart rate in real time or record their heart rate for later study. Early models consisted of a monitoring box with a set of electrode leads that attached to the chest. Modern versions usually consist of two elements: a chest strap transmitter and a wrist receiver or mobile phone (which usually doubles as a watch or phone). Strapless heart rate monitors are available as well, but lack some of the functionality of the original design. Advanced models additionally measure heart rate variability, activity, and breathing rate to assess parameters relating to a subject's fitness. Some newer monitors have replaced the plastic straps with fabric sensors for comfort or garment integration. The new smart fabric technology has some promise to eliminate the need for elastic straps that hold the transmitter with embedded electrodes in contact with the chest. At least one available monitor attaches to the chest using electrocardiograph (ECG) electrodes.

When a heart beat is detected a radio (analog) or digital signal is transmitted, which the receiver uses to determine the current heart rate. This signal can be a simple radio pulse or a unique coded signal from the chest strap (such as Bluetooth, ANT, or other low-power radio link); the latter prevents one user's receiver from using signals from other nearby transmitters (known as cross-talk interference).

There are a wide number of receiver designs, with various advanced features. These include average heart rate over exercise period, time in a specific heart rate zone, calories burned, breathing rate, built in speed and distance, and detailed logging that can be downloaded to a computer.

The Polar Electro company's website states they invented the first accurate, wireless electrocardiogram heart rate monitor in 1977, to be used as a training tool for the Finnish National Cross Country Ski Team.[1] In fact, there were earlier developers of this technology that used hard-wired portable monitors.

In 1992, Sally Edwards, CEO of Heart Zones USA, wrote a book about this cardiac wrist computer titled The Heart Rate Monitor Book. She also created the first programs for schools, health clubs, weight loss programs, and has now written over 10 books and a half dozen videos to provide the educational companion for any manufacturers heart rate wristop or any device capturing tool.

Most Chest Belt Heart Rate Monitors (Polar) seem to use 5KHz Analog Radio Signal Coded T31, or 2.4GHZ Digital Signal W.I.N.D.

Polar devoloped a Bluetooth version of their Transmitter (Team2) and one for Nokia (as supplied in N79 Active package).

Polar Bluetooth HRM adapter launch.
Because we wanted to use a Polar HRM with any phone not just the N79, we made an interface that converts heart rate data from Polar WearLink (5 GHz) to Bluetooth.We have used the system with very simple models like the Nokia 2630 and it works great.
We have several models, depending whether you also want other features like GP or 3 axis accelerometer in your sensor.
We will post more information in the coming weeks for full release this fall, but it is already available for early testing.
Feel free to contact Sensaris ( http://www.sensaris.com ) for more information."

I sent an e-mail to 'Sensaris' and this is the reply that I received:-

Dear Mr Whittall,

You seem to really be taking things in hand and I hope you will get better soon through this combination.
We already use the interface with the Nokia N70 and Nokia 2630 so I would imagine that it will be the same for the Nokia N95 as well.
There is an application to send the heart rate to a distant server and you get to see the heart rate on the phone itself too.We send you a small software program by e mail and you install it on the phone, just like any other application.Then you just click on the mobicardio icon and you are set. It would be easy to write an application so you could indicate your HR Max and there would an alarm going off when you reach 90 %.
At the moment because we are making small quantities, the price for the interface is € 180 but if we can find 100 interested people we could bring it down quite a bit, and of course this is our goal.We want to be able to sell for € 125 by mid 2010 when we wll look for investors.I wish we could offer better price right now, but we can not so we will appreciate if you talk abut this to other people you think might be interested.

Best regards.

Dear all,

I was wondering if you would be interested in a heart rate monitor (belt only) which sends out the heart rate via bluetooth.

If enough people are interested I am willing to investigate if it can be produced.
An initial guess on price would be around 75 euros for the belt.

Please let me know if you, or other people you know, are interested (bt.hrmonitor@gmail.com)

Best regards,

I am developing heart rate monitor software for smart phones. I have been a sw developer for over 20 years and have been doing mobile development for the last 5 years.

I have a hr monitor from zephyr technology and am starting to write the sw. If people have a specific phone they would like it to work with, then let me know.

I can write sw for android, blackberry and symbian.

I am trying to write a blackberry sw prototype right now. Hopefully in 3 weeks or so I should have something.(not working on this full time)

I am waiting on receiving a development android and symbian phone.
