Smart and cost effective healthcare has been in increasing demand to meet the needs of growing human population and medical expenses. ECG monitoring is a widely studied and applied approach to diagnose heart diseases. However, existing portable wireless ECG monitoring systems cannot work without a mobile application, which is responsible for data collection and passing on the messages to doctors. In this project, we propose a new method for ECG monitoring based on Cypress Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices (WICED) Internet of Things (IoT) platform
