Abstract    :   Athlete’s physiological signalsduring practice and competitions are very useful to safeguard their life from severe life threatening diseases and injuries. Among the various physiological signals such as Electroencephalography (EEG),Electromyography (EMG), Electrocardiogram (ECG) etc. the most important and the challenging one is ECG.In this paper, we have proposed a wireless ECG signal monitoring system with Raspberry Pi microcontrollerthrough which the ECG signal is acquired and analyzed.A special type of sensor device with surface electrodes called SHIMMER is used to acquire the ECG signal from chest of the players. SHIMMER has inbuilt microcontroller MSP 430 which converts analog ECG signal into digital data and also support low power wireless communication for the transmission of digital data to the external device based on the standard IEEE 802.15.4 and ZigBee.
