    CMS is an EKG based data driven signal processing system. It would facilitate cardiac monitoring and analysis for patients from far flung areas with no access to cardiac centers.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    WHO data published in 2018 reports that CVDs caused 20.28% of total deaths in Pakistan. Feasible solution to this is early detection. We are designing a handheld device capable of performing EKG, uploading the data online for further analysis and indicating any abnormality at the earliest.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Device should be used by cardiac patients enabling them to perform their EKG. Powered by 5V battery and requiring an internet connection, it could be used by different type of people and telemetry would be performed with a click saving the time and cost of a doctor's visit.
How will the solution works
    Heart is a muscular organ having its own electrical activity. This signal is recorded through electrodes attached to body and is fed into the Analog front end controller for signal conditioning prior to digital conversion using Arduino, It acts as a gateway device for the IoT application responsible for serial communication with MATLAB where signal is pre-processed for further signal processing involving event detection and statistical analysis.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Commercially available diagnostic devices are expensive ranging from 100-150 Dollars, making it uneconomical. We are introducing a novel product that incorporates affordable electronic components to achieve the same task with an approximated price of 20 Dollars.
