Abstract

1312107 Electro-medical apparatus T ORR 16 July 1971[29 Sept 1970] 46151/70 Heading G1N [Also in Divisions G3 and H4] A digital or dial display of heart-beat rate is provided on a watch face from a signal derived from a transducer which detects the heart beats. As shown, the transducer 1 (10) is mounted on a wrist strap 20 and surrounded by a resilient band 21, the transducer including a pressure sensitive resistor, Fig. 1 (not shown) or a pressure sensitive transistor, Fig. 2 (not shown). The transducer may be connected to circuitry included in an electronic watch which provides a display digitally by means of light emitting diodes, Fig. 5 (not shown), a conventional watch mechanism, Fig. 6 (not shown), or an impulsed pendulum or tuning dork type watch mechanism, Fig. 7 (not shown). In each case, a timing signal derived from the watch mechanism is compared with the transducer signal and the heart beat rate is ascertained over successive time intervals, a counter and memory being used so that a display corresponding to one period is provided while the value during a successive period is stored. The transducer may be attached to any suitable body portion.
