Cardiac Designs Inc. announced today that its ECG Check mobile heart monitor and analysis engine for iPhone 5 & 5S will be showcased at the 5th Annual mHealth Summit in Washington, D.C., December 8-11, 2013 in Booth 427. The ECG Check is the first FDA-cleared, ECG smartphone monitor offering prescription and over-the-counter sales and also includes an automated analysis engine for the detection and trending of heart rhythms.
The ECG Check is now available to enable patients to record their heart rhythm anytime, anywhere and have it automatically analyzed for arrhythmias. The ECG Check, which makes cardiac rhythm analysis quick and easy, is convenient, portable, and is enhancing the way people’s heart rhythms are screened and monitored. It’s as easy as placing one’s fingers on the sensors and relaxing; there are no adhesive electrodes or special devices needed. Because it wraps conveniently around the iPhone, the ECG Check monitor remains with the user at all times and ensures availability whenever and wherever the need arises. ECG readings can be instantly recorded, stored on the iPhone, transmitted to and analyzed by the ECG Check Web Center, and results are returned in seconds. When prescribed by a physician, the ECG can even be displayed real-time on the iPhone screen during the recording. The ECG Check is available for purchase by medical professionals and by consumers for $99 at http://www.ecgcheck.com, select from iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 models.
“The release of the iPhone 5 & 5S model extends the reach of the ECG Check to millions more consumers, enabling more people to take control of their heart health and to collaborate with their care team, wherever they are and whenever they want,” said Karim Marrouche, CEO and co-founder of Cardiac Design.
The ECG Check monitor can be operated within 30 ft. range from the phone or be attached to the back of an iPhone 4S or 5, like a protective case to record, store, transfer, and analyze single-channel electrocardiograms (ECG) wirelessly through ECG Check app (available for free in the iTunes App Store) and the ECG Check Web Center. Bluetooth pairing between the iPhone and ECG Check is automatic and requires no additional intervention of the user. Recordings are always available within the app and on the ECG Check Web Center for sharing at the user’s discretion.
