A wearable, long term ECG measurement system
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Risk stratification methods are being developed here at MIT that could determine if and when an individual will have a cardiac event and researchers in the Sodini Group have created a wearable, long term ECG measurement system that can record a single lead ECG and 3-axis acceleration data for a period of up to one week. While the prototype device performs well under a variety of conditions, both mechanical and software improvements are needed before the device can be worn by patients. The goal of this Super UROP will be to design the next generation of the prototype system, paying special attention to mechanical reliability and comfort.
In my 6.161 class I created a final project that involved building a Faraday rotator and demonstrating its effects on light traveling through regular water. During this project I spent many hours in the lab constructing different designs and testing their efficacy in building a viable experiment.
