[quote]Recently, I have been playing with a Cooking Hacks e-Health Sensor Platform V2.0. It is an Arduino shield that allows a bunch of health sensors to be plugged in.
I have the shield as well as the pulsixometer and ECG sensor, which I am able to work with on the Arduino, and thought that I’d give it a try on the Windows Galileo board. To start, I downloaded the library for the e-Health Sensor Platform for Galileo - this is a library for a standard Galileo, not a Windows one, but would be a good place to start. I had a look at the source for the library and found that the pulsixometer doesn’t exist (which is not surprising as the implementation of the pulsixometer is poor - it reads led’s rather than getting integer values). The ECG API was simply a small calculation made on an analogue read. Even as a .net developer who has managed to avoid C++, I was able to implement it quite easily. All that the e-Sensor does is convert the ECG reading into a voltage from 0 to 5 volts to build the waveform.
