2With the technology being growing very fast, there is a huge demand towards developing cost effective healthcare delivery especially for rural India. Every year around 32 million patients suffer from some types of cardiac diseases in our country, with this huge number (almost the population of Canada), cardiac care is one of the most busiest medical specialties in India.  A group of final year medical electronics students of MSRIT in association with the M.S.Ramaiah Hospitals under the guidance of Dr N.Sriraam(MSRIT) and Dr Nagamalesh(MSRMH) have come with a novel prototype on real-time wearable belt for continuous monitoring of cardiac (ECG) signals from the heart.  With this device,especially the old people can wear and do their day today routine  where their ECG  is monitored continuously. Whenever the person  feels any chest pains or giddiness, the corresponding  ECG recording will be transmitted immediately, which can be viewed by the doctor from anywhere . Further  the system will also convey the type of arrhythmia so that attendant can take the necessary step at  that point.

Globally the number of people of all ages visually impaired is estimated to be 285 million, of whom 39 million are blind and the number is increasing. Nearly 75% of these visual impairments can be cured if, timely diagnosis is done. Existing eye care tools are expensive, not portable, difficult to use and   access. People don’t get treated quickly enough, or at all. Patients in rural areas lack the financial means to undergo regular eye examinations and rural ophthalmologists do not possess expensive equipments to diagnose their patients. As a tool for diagnosis the smartphone camera and lens adapter arrangement can be used as an  affordable, easy to use and portable system for testing eyes. The device could replace the existing expensive eye screening equipments when only early screening of eye diseases and basic regular fundus examinations are required. Being a battery operated device, it could be used in thousands of villages with no power supply
