This project is a network of wireless heart rate monitors to be used in ad-hoc recovery rooms following disaster scenarios. The wireless monitors, or nodes, are placed on patients and determine their heart rate using photoplethysmography. The data sent from each node is viewed on a nearby laptop where medical personnel can monitor patients and be alerted of any abnormal activity.

The project is dubbed WAMPUM for Wireless Aggregating Multinode, PUlse Monitor.

Created with Jeremy Warner, Jae Min Choi, and Ivy Racquel for senior design at the University of Rochester.
