Abstract

The extremely undesired occurrence of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) begins with an infant who is put without constant check, although most of the infants are apparently healthy. The need to circumvent such occurrences demands at least keeping a constant check on the child’s vital physiological changes by all means, most importantly remotely. When a child is going through distress the most likely change observed instantly is their heart rate and temperature. The device designed and built in this work would help keep check on the body temperature as well as heart rate. This health monitoring device would get signals from the wearable worn by the child whenever there is a change in temperature and heart rate, and send the vital parameters to the guardians wirelessly. With this kind of device in place, presented simply in form of a wearable, the growing rate of infant mortality due to lack of care givers and close attention or any form of negligence would be curbed.
