Medical grade ECG recording of 8/12-Leads ECG
If you ever wondered about your heart health, you probably came across an ECG monitor and perhaps wondered how ECG testing or monitoring works
WHAT IS AN ECG?
ECG is the abbreviation of the word electrocardiogram – a heart test that tracks the electrical activity of your heart and records it on a moving paper or shows it as a moving line on a screen. An ECG tracing is the most simple, diffuse and cost-effective way to analyse the heart and detect irregularities that might lead to serious health problems such as a stroke or heart attack. By looking at an ECG, a doctor can discern medically relevant information about the health and activity level of your heart muscle much better than you can tell from your heart rate alone performed by most wearable devices.
HOW DOES AN ECG DEVICE WORK?
To get an ECG trace, an ECG device is needed to record it. As the electrical signals move through the heart, the ECG monitor records the strength and the timing of these signals. ECGs are the required gold standard for diagnosis of arrhythmias and many cardiac abnormalities, and can even be used to see evidence of acute heart attacks and even events that have occurred in the past. As traditional ECG recorders and Holter monitors require intrusive skin preparation, professional fitting in the doctor's office, they cannot be used by individuals with no medical background.
D-Heart has designed the world's first ECG device that is as reliable as hospital ECGs and it can be used anywhere and by anyone with no medical background. It works with your iPhone or iPad via Bluetooth and it can be worn whenever you want to check your heart health or when you feel a strange symptom.
