Continuous monitoring of respiratory rate, blood oxygen level and body temperature is vital for early detection of COVID-19 among patients and monitoring their health condition. Early detection of COVID-19 is crucial for successful treatment of this deadly disease. Unfortunately, most of the COVID-19 patients do not indicate any serious symptom such as breathing problem in early stage of this disease. And by the time they do, they have alarmingly low oxygen levels and moderate-to-severe pneumonia which in many cases does not have any treatment and leads to death. The purpose of this study is to develop a low-cost wearable technology that can continuously and accurately measures respiratory rate, blood oxygen level and body temperature in wide range, in order to be used for early diagnosis of COVID-19 among patients and monitoring their health condition changes.
