Easy, portable atrial fibrillation detection

The Kardia Mobile device offered by AliveCor is an innovative electrocardiogram (EKG) that is smaller than a credit card and can be used with a smartphone. AliveCor is exhibiting at the Wearable Technology Show 2017.

Being the most clinically-validated and FDA-cleared mobile EKG system, Kardia gives users a medical-grade EKG in 30 seconds from anywhere. The accompanying app lets you track and share information about your heart from the device. Users can reliably track heart activity data and send it to doctors who can diagnose and determine treatments, should there be a problem.

AliveCor, for example, can spot atrial fibrillation, which is associated with an increased risk of heart failure, dementia, and stroke. (In fact, AliveCor claims that people can prevent 90% of strokes.)

It also lets you track palpitations, shortness of break, dietary habits, sleep and exercise patterns.
