This site contains a repository of information about my attempts to build ECG machines (also known as EKG machines) from spare parts and retired medical equipment. It also contains some reviews of old equipment.

Why build an ECG? There are three reasons.

1) It's a major challenge - technologically difficult & a bit of an engineering puzzle.
2) It's damn interesting.
3) There is huge potential to use outdated 'broken' medical gear to produce diagnostic equipment for the third world. Think about it - it's better than landfill.
