  author={Jae Min Kang and Taiwoo Yoo and Hee Chan Kim},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement},
In this paper, the prototype development of a wrist-worn integrated health monitoring device (WIHMD) with tele-reporting function for emergency telemedicine and home telecare for the elderly is reported. The WIHMD consists of six vital biosignal measuring modules, which include a fall detector, a single-channel electrocardiogram, noninvasive blood pressure, pulse oximetry (SpO2), respiration rate, and body surface temperature measuring units. The size of the WIHMD is 60times50times20 mm, except… CONTINUE READING
