Is the output of AD8232 reliable enough to be used for medical diagnostics as end application?
Although the manufacturer does not recommend using it as a professional medical device, it is possible to have a reliable ECG signal that can be used for medical diagnosis.
But first of all you must modify the initial circuit recommended by the manufacturer. To do this you must extend the cutting frequencies of the filters. Then have a suitable board to process the data and do the evaluations through software. Do not use Arduino since it is a very general platform. Use other alternatives such as a Raspberri Pi.It uses precision components with tolerances of 0.1% or maximum 1%.You can apply these changes and you will have a reliable and low-cost device.
