A small company has developed an iPhone 4 case with a built-in ECG, just unveiled a smaller and more streamlined ECG that can work with any iPhone or iPad. We are not surprised to know that there is also an iPhone app which is capable of reading your heart rate when it works in tandem with another compatible device.
The company is working on a more hardware-agnostic option for your iOS heart monitoring needs. The business card-sized iCard ECG mounts to the back of your iDevice using velcro and wirelessly feeds data from its electrodes to the AliveECG app.
The app will continue to record 30 seconds of your heart’s rhythmic pulse automatically prior to uploading it over to AliveCor’s servers so that you can share such information with your doctor or medical caregiver. Seems like a dream, since it will work with the whole family of iPhones without limiting it to newer generations.
They’re still awaiting FDA approval, so you can’t run out and pick one up just yet. But, when it does hit shelves, it looks like you’ll have a choice of red or black so you can make sure your medical accessories match your scrubs. Checkout the video bellow.
