AliveCor produces miniaturised ECG devices used with smartphones and tablets (Kardia Mobile) or the Apple Watch (Kardia Band). Producing real-time, on-screen diagnostic quality ECG, Kardia accurately detects AF and other arrhythmias enabling clinicians and patients to record anytime and anywhere, capturing intermittent symptoms as they occur.
Classified as a medical device and approved by the FDA in the USA, Kardia is a valuable tool to aid detection of heart arrythmias with a high level of accuracy. In just 30 seconds, a patient can have a recording of their ECG and, if they are in AF, the device will notify as such. The recording can be retained by emailing the result directly to the patient's physician or nurse. Consequently, the time to diagnosis and therapy can be dramatically reduced.
