Electrocardiogram (ECG) is an electrical activity of the heart, which can be recorded by placing electrodes near heart or on the limbs. ECG is a vital body signal, which reflects the heart health condition. This paper presents a new wearable ECG system, which can be used for long-term rhythm monitoring with the potential of increased sensitivity to detect intermittent or subclinical arrhythmia. This study presents the design and development of a wearable pervasive healthcare monitoring system by ECG measurement systems and internet of things (IoT) platform. In this design, non-intrusive healthcare system was designed based on wireless body area network (WBAN) for wide area coverage with minimum battery power to support wireless transmission. Data were transmitted via Wi-Fi to the personalized mobile system. These were integrated into a comfortable, easy to wear, and ergonomically designed armband ECG sensor system, which can acquire an ECG signal from the upper arm of the user over a period of 72 hours. 2020 IEEE.
