Case Study: Custom ECG Data Acquisition System for Healthcare

Share This Case Study


Our team at [Company Name] was approached to develop a custom ECG data acquisition system to collect vital signals from patients, such as heart rate, oxygen rate, and other health parameters.

The system was designed to be used in healthcare facilities, and the collected data was used by both onsite and remote doctors to diagnose and treat patients.

The IoT Development Life Cycle

To ensure the success of the project, we followed a structured approach to IoT development. This included the following stages:

  1. Ideation and Conceptualization
  2. Prototyping and Testing
  3. Implementation and Deployment
  4. Maintenance and Upgrades

Custom Hardware

The custom hardware used in the ECG data acquisition system consisted of Arm Cortex processors, MMC/SD card storage, and LCD screens. The Arm Cortex processors were used to process and analyze the data, while the MMC/SD card provided local storage. The LCD screens displayed live data for onsite administrators, such as nurses, to monitor.

Windows Applications and WDM Drivers

To enhance the functionality of the system, we developed Windows applications and WDM drivers. The applications allowed administrators to monitor vital signs and adjust system settings, while the WDM drivers ensured seamless integration with other devices and systems.

Data Streaming

The collected data was streamed to internal servers and made available to both onsite and remote doctors. This allowed for real-time monitoring and analysis of patient vital signs, making it easier for doctors to diagnose and treat patients.

HIPAA Compliance

We made sure that the ECG data acquisition system was HIPAA compliant to ensure the privacy and security of patient health information.


Before deployment, we carried out a thorough prototyping and testing phase. This allowed us to identify any issues and make necessary improvements before releasing the final product. Our prototypes were also used to test the various features of the system, such as data processing, storage, and real-time monitoring.


The custom ECG data acquisition system was successfully deployed in multiple healthcare facilities and has been instrumental in helping doctors diagnose and treat patients. The use of custom hardware and the IoT development life cycle allowed us to create a solution that is both reliable and user-friendly. With its ability to collect and analyze vital signals, our system has been a valuable tool in the healthcare industry.


The custom ECG data acquisition system is a testament to our team’s expertise in IoT development and custom hardware solutions.

By utilizing the latest technologies and a structured approach, we were able to deliver a solution that met the client’s needs and exceeded their expectations. Our team is ready to tackle any future projects that require custom hardware and IoT development solutions for the healthcare industry.

With an integrated solution, your organization will be able to take full advantage of modern technology while retaining control over its data and processes. Custom software development can help you streamline operations and improve the overall efficiency of your business.

Custom Wearable Watch

Case Study: A Custom Wearable Watch for Monitoring Heart Rate, Body Temperature, and Sudden Falls


The wearable industry is constantly growing and evolving, with new products being introduced every year that offer more and more advanced features. Our custom wearable watch is a cutting-edge product that integrates a range of sensors to monitor vital signs and detect sudden falls, providing critical information to keep the wearer safe and healthy. In this case study, we’ll delve into the features of the watch and the IoT development life cycle that we used to build it.

Integrated Sensors

The custom wearable watch integrates heart rate monitoring (HRM), temperature sensing, and an accelerometer to track a range of health metrics. The HRM provides real-time monitoring of the wearer’s heart rate, while the temperature sensor tracks the body temperature, and the accelerometer detects any sudden falls. These sensors work together to provide a comprehensive picture of the wearer’s health, giving them and their caregivers peace of mind.

Tiny Lithium Ion Battery

The watch runs on a tiny lithium-ion battery, which provides long battery life and ensures that the wearer never has to worry about the watch running out of power. The battery is easy to charge, and the watch has a low-power mode that extends the battery life even further.

LoRa-Based Long-Range Communication

The watch collects data regularly and sends it over LoRa (Long Range) WAN, which is a sub-gig RF frequency (868 MhAZ). LoRa is touted as one of the best protocols for IoT and is ideal for battery-powered devices due to its low power consumption and built-in security features. This long-range communication capability ensures that the data can be transmitted over long distances, making it ideal for monitoring the wearer’s health even when they’re away from home.

Backend Analysis and Emergency Assistance

The data collected by the watch is transmitted to the backend, where it is analyzed to provide a general health assessment of the wearer. This information can be used to alert caregivers or emergency services if necessary, providing critical assistance in the event of a sudden fall or other health emergency.

Proof of Concept and Design

We participated in the complete design and proof of concept phase of the wearable watch, ensuring that the product was optimized for performance and user experience. Our team of engineers and designers worked together to create a product that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing, making it a great choice for anyone looking to stay safe and healthy.

IoT Development Life Cycle

The development of the wearable watch was guided by the IoT development life cycle, which involves several phases including planning, design, development, testing, and deployment. Our team followed this process to ensure that the watch was developed to the highest standards and that it would meet the needs of users.
