Hearty

Abstract

Hearty is an application for Android-based mobile devices that allows real-time electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring and automated arrhythmia detection by analyzing ECG parameters. ECG data provided by pre-recorded files or acquired live by accessing a Shimmer™ sensor node via Bluetooth can be processed and evaluated. The application is based on the Pan-Tompkins algorithm for QRS-detection and contains further algorithm blocks to detect abnormal heartbeats.

Please read the readme.txt file contained in the Hearty application archive before installing and using the application.

Compatibility Issues and Troubleshooting
  • There is a known issue when running the program on a multi-core SoC architecture. The program may close spontaneously while communicating with the data acquisition service.
  • If there is a problem with Hearty, try to force close the application using any task killer app and restart Hearty.
