Combination of embedded systems and wireless technology provides a lot of opportunities for acquisition, processing and transmission of data. It is useful to apply these technology approaches for solving medical problems. ECG is the record of the heart muscle electric impulses. Received and processed ECG signal could be analyzed, and results could be used for detection and diagnostics of heart diseases. One of the important medical problems is arrhythmia. In this work, the aim was to detect them in the easiest way by detecting R waves, and measuring R-R intervals. A part of the researching is, also, how to register the ECG signal in action and inaction in some enveloped area.
