ProtoCentral HealthyPi v3 HAT for Raspberry Pi
HealthyPi is the first fully open-source, full-featured vital sign monitor. Using the Raspberry Pi as its computing and display platform, the HealthyPi add-on HAT turns the Raspberry Pi into a vital sign monitoring system.
If you don't already have one, you can now buy HealthyPi from any of the following places:
- /firmware - Atmel studio and aduino example sketches.
- /Hardware - All Eagle design files (.brd, .sch)
- /extras - includes the datasheet
- /gui - HealthyPi GUI for Raspberry Pi and PC
- /docs - Documentation
Getting Started (On Raspberry Pi):
http://healthypi.protocentral.comFor getting started videos and tutorials, please go to
Mount ProtoCentral's HealthyPi-v3 HAT carefully onto the Raspberry Pi Board's GPIO Pins. Connect this setup with the Raspberry Pi's Display or a HDMI Monitor. The HAT communicates with Raspberry Pi using UART interface on the GPIO pin header. Connect the ECG electrodes and SPO2 Probe to the ProtoCentral's Healthy PI Hat.
It's now easy to get started with our brand-new installation script. Just follow the following steps on your Raspberry Pi.
To start, open up the terminal window (Menu -> Accessories -> Terminal) on Raspbian running on your Raspberry Pi:
In the terminal window, type the following lines.
curl -sS http://pi.protocentral.com/hpi3.sh | sudo bash
It really is as simple as that !!
This code will install all the required overlays, configuration and application files to get the Healthy Pi up and running.
After the script reboots, you should be able to see the GUI display on the screen
This completes the install!
If the above script does not work for you and would like to do a manual installation or would like to customize the code, check out [Advanced HealthyPi] (/docs/advanced-healthypi.md).
Using the HealthyPi GUI on Windows, MacOS and Linux
The HealthyPi board now streams the same data on the on-board USB port. This allows you to get the same data that goes to the Raspberry Pi, now on your desktop PC as well.
Java 8 is required on all platforms for running the processing-based GUI application. You can download Java for your platform from the following link.
Installing drivers (only for Windows)
HealthyPi uses the same drivers as an Arduino Zero. Once plugged in to the USB port, the device would be recognized as an "Unknown Device". You can locate the device is the Windows Device Manager and manually install the drivers provided in the "drivers" folder in the Windows Executable ZIP archive provided.
MacOS and Linux do not need any drivers to be installed.
Processing GUI Installation
Download the zip file containing the executable files from the releases section for 32-bit/64-bit Windows. If you do not know if you have a 64-bit or 32-bit computer, please download the 32-bit version.
Download the latest GUI for HealthyPi
Simply download the appropriate file for your operating system, unzip the contents and run the executable program contained in it.
