BME100 f2017:Group12 W1030 L3

SCENARIO

You have just graduated with your BME degree and have been hired by a start-up company called “Suntronic”. They are developing a new body temperature and heart rate monitor for smart phones and want to check out the competition. The latest such device is from Spree Sports (www.spreesports.com) and they claim the device can accurately measure body temperature and heart rate. Your assignment is to assess how valid the device is as well as to identify any design flaws by comparing the temperature and heart rate readings on the device to those of an oral thermometer and pulse oximeter.

ASSIGNMENT

1. Using the provided data and supplied how to videos, calculate the mean and standard deviation for both sensor, oral thermometer and pulse ox.

Oral Thermometer Mean: 96.64716049

Spree Mean: 95.53086

Oral Thermometer Standard Deviation: 1.2922602071

Spree Standard Deviation: 0.8730378

Pulse Ox Mean: 98.08977

Spree Mean: 98.9538

Pulse Ox Standard Deviation: 23.03054

Spree: Standard Deviation: 24.87754

2.Calculate the correlation coefficient (Pearson’s r) between 1) the oral thermometer and Spree Band and 2) the pulse ox and the Spree Band.

Oral thermometer & Spree Band: 0.192798089

Pulse ox & Spree Band: 0.690806

3. Run statistical analysis to compare the 1) oral thermometer and Spree Band and 2) the pulse ox and the Spree Band.

Oral thermometer & Spree Band: 1.092798089E-21

Pulse ox & Spree Band: 0.427116

4. Graph all your results and include stars showing significance (if appropriate).
