Shock Protector

I build a system that is capable of monitoring the medical instruments or areas of contact with the patient to prevent the patient from receiving one of these shocks and, in the case of detecting these leakage currents, activate an alarm so that there is proper maintenance for the equipment or they can cancel their use.
