HeartMonitor is a system that monitors heart status, automatically contacts the emergency central at heart failure and gives the position of the patient using the GPS. The EKG or pulse is collected using a chest patch with electrodes recording the signal and a Bluetooth unit which transfers the heart status to the mobile phone. The Bluetooth data transfer feature needs to be implemented in the code. For now the program just simulates a heart attack after a given number of seconds.
