Heartbeat monitor

Posted on Jun 9, 2012

? simple heart-beat transducer can be made from an infrared LED and an infrared phototransistor. ?t works because skin acts as a ref1ecti?e surface for infrared light. The lR ref1ecti?ity of one's skin depends ??? the density of blood in it. Blood density rises and falls with the pumping action of the heart.
