I am looking to build a respiratory magnetometer (not for medical use just to see how it can be done with advances that have been made since the original designs). I was thinking about using one of Sparkfun's magnetometer boards and a strong magnet. The magnetometer would be placed on a person’s sternum and a magnet on their back. I would try to build a set up where the distance between the magnet and the magnetometer was tracked as the individual was breathing. Do you think any of your magnetometers would be able to be used in such a project and if so is there one that you would recommend? I know I have a lot more work to do on this I just need a good starting point. Thanks!
