Vector EKG Wire-frame Models

Otto Schmitt, a biophysicist at the University of Minnesota, is considered the father of biomedical engineering.

Schmitt wanted to improve on the electrocardiograph (EKG), which measures electrical currents of the heart.

As a result of his research in the late 1940s and 1950s, he created a way to represent a heart’s rhythm in three dimensions.

This vector model shows the direction of each electrical pulse and its strength.
