Is it possible to make a wearable Heart Beat Sound amplifier? Answered
This is for my final project for one of my university papers and what I want to do is to make a object that can amplify or create the sound of the heart and can either worn on the hand or the neck like a necklace, as a form of communication and/or self expression. Visual aesthetics are important for this one so ideally, if its possible Id like to make this wearable object portable and super simple since I'm an amateur when it comes to anything electrical like this!
I did see another question on this site which was practically the same as mine, amplifying the sound of the heart beat for a project and one of the comments mentioned using piezoelectric elements to pick up the movement of the veins and therefore create a sound through an amp and a speaker. This would be perfect for my project even though its not the exact sound of the heart but its doable, except connecting it to an amp etc isn't exactly small or compact enough for it to be wearable.
(Here's the web address to the other question I mentioned above: https://www.instructables.com/answers/How-do-I-connect-a-stethoscope-to-a-speaker-How-/)
So...is there any other way to use piezoelectric elements to pick up the movement of the veins and output it somehow preferably through sound, but representing it visually through LED lights could also be an option, but again, how do you make this inexpensive, wearable and simple to make??
Any suggestions anyone??
