In this paper the authors give a novel idea about the design and implementation of a microcontroller based pulse counter. Intel 8051 is used as the main microcontroller unit and the system has been fabricated to count the total number of pulse in a minute. IR sensors are connected as the input sensors which read the blood flow through the fingers. The microcontroller counts the number of input signals and thus generates an output on a display window build using three 7 segment IC.
