Singing Greeting Card Beeper as a Finger Pulse Sensor
Belusic, Gregor; Zupancic, Gregor
Advances in Physiology Education, v34 n2 p90-92 Jun 2010
We constructed a robust and low-priced finger pulse sensor from a singing greeting card beeper. The beeper outputs the plethysmographic signal, which is indistinguishable from that of commercial grade sensors. The sensor can be used in school for a number of experiments in human cardiovascular physiology.
