Optical Heart Rate Monitor (Plug and Play)
OHRM Raspberry Pi edited

Time required: 30 minutes          

Description: This activity teaches students biomedical concepts related to the blood circulation as well as basic principles of electronics. Participants assemble a board that measures the heart rate through the subject’s fingertip and shows the cardiac frequency through a blinking light. The product teaches principles of electronics and biomedical engineering through hands-on learning and is ideal for middle/high school and college students, or for students training for careers in electronics, BMET, and healthcare occupations. Through assembling this board, students discover and apply STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) skills and knowledge. The EWH Optical Heart Rate Monitor kit should be used for educational purposes only! The kit includes a bare board with sockets already soldered and electronics components, which can be reused for multiple assemblies without any special tool.

Muscles-Joints/Hydraulic Arm/Hydraulic Hand       Picture Muscles Joints

       

Description: This activity defines the different kinds of joints found in the body and explains how the muscles interact with them. Joint/muscle interaction is demonstrated through the building of an arm muscle/bone structure with rubber bands and craft sticks. Also, principles of hydraulics and knowledge of prosthetic devices can be taught through a hydraulic joint made with syringes. The hydraulic hand can be combined with the arm to demonstrate a full prosthetic arm.
