As a summer intern in the Medical Devices Group at MSR I developed a fully-analog wearable passive sensor for continuous physiological monitoring. The vision for this work is to develop a bandaid-like device that can be worn on the body for bed-side monitoring of heart rate, breathing rate or temperature. The device was also designed for sensor input flexibility as a plug-and-play platform that interfaces with different types of sensors. The prototype device performs sensing and communicates sensed signals at sub 200 micro Watts power budget (harvested from a 915MHz radio frequency continuous wave singal).
