Abstract:

A system is postulated to count the total number of heart beats in one day. The device is intended for use as a possible indicator of the level of physical fitness of an individual. It is portable, self-contained, and provides for comfortable and natural movement of the subject during the course of daily activities. Electronic design is developed including detailed schematic diagrams of all electronic circuitry involved. The complete plans and photographs of a working prototype are presented. The prototype is to be further tested and evaluated in the exercise physiology laboratory at California State College at Long Beach. It is hoped that this device will prove to be of value in studies and research in physical fitness. Author
