Low power ECG, heart rate and motion detection on mobile phone

Electronics company IMEC and the Dutch government supported Holst Centre have demonstrated a new low power health monitoring chip with the latest Bluetooth capability which, it is claimed, can last a month on a 200 mAh battery. The chip is capable of taking ECG, heart rate and motion detection and transmitting the data to a mobile phone. Applications include epileptic seizure detection and heart arrythmia monitoring.
