Paper Abstract

Personal Computers (PC) are getting cheaper because of fast development in Central Processing Unit (CPU) and Random Access Memory. Consequently the cost/performance ratio keeps on decreasing in the past 10 years. Three years ago, the cost of a 486 PC with 90 MHz CPU was about $DLR2500. Now we are able to purchase a Pentium 450 MHz PC that is at least 10 times faster than the 486 with essentially the same cost. It is now becoming realistic to use a PC for many real-time applications. This motivates us to develop PC based real- time Health Monitoring tools instead of special purpose DSP based tools. There are three major advantages of using PC- based HM tools.
