TitleA Wearable Device for Heart Rate Monitoring on Pregnancy Healthcare System

Abstract: In the modern society, more and more people get married at an older age nowadays. As a consequence, many women get pregnant at a higher age and thus have a higher risk of pregnancy complications such as pregnancy-induced hypertension, gestational diabetes, and premature delivery. In addition, pregnant women go to hospital for a regular checkup and will be engaged in daily activities most of the time. How to assist them to take a good care for their daily health is an important issue. Therefore, in this work, we developed a wearable device for heart rate monitoring using PVDF sensor. The device is equipped with a Bluetooth communication module so that it can be connected to a mobile phone through Bluetooth and so that pregnant women can get their heart rate information anytime they like. In addition, the heart rate data will be sent to the pregnancy management system through the mobile phone network function. We also design different algorithms and event notification mechanisms for different application scenarios (pregnancy complications) on the wearable device and the pregnant management system. In this way, an intelligent pregnancy healthcare system is achieved.
