The significance of the current research was mainly focused on implementation of attachable ECG sensor adhesive patch of low-power, inexpensive and relatively small form factor for continuous monitoring and recording of infrequent cardiac events in real time. The device was designed to maximize Comfort and minimize the footprint on the user. A single lead, home care electrocardiogram (ECG), are recorded while a user wearing the device carries out his/her daily activities. The patch is thin and flexible for  comfortable  wear  on  the  person’s  chest  for  recoding  of  ECG  provided simple self-administration. The patch incorporates a battery, dry electrode, ECG amplifier and microprocessor for recording events. A software algorithm converts analogue signal into digital signal by sampling at the rate of 500 samples per second and enables the RF transmission through BLE. It also includes android application to display ECG graphically on mobile phone. The patch is intended to be designed for continuous long term wear up to 3 days. This design can be used widely in home health care, community health care and sports training due to its characteristics of low power consumption, small in size and reliability.
