Low Cost Smartphone Case that’s going to transform Cardiac Monitoring


Serial entrepreneur Dr David Albert has released the above video of the new Smartphone case that he’s developed. Featuring electrodes and retailing at less than <$100 it’s capable of transforming the phone into a web-connected cardiac event recorder capable of remotely sharing a clinical quality ECG.

The company is scheduling appointments with media and potential retail/carrier/devicemaker/pharma partners at next weeks CES event in Las Vegas (on the Oregon Scientific Inc booth (South Hall Lower Level – S117/8)). For further info contact drdave01@yahoo.com or visit AliveCor.

Cases, Insertable Cartridge Slots) I can’t wait to see the innovative new apps and remote monitoring services that are going to be created with this accessory because until now we’ve only had very expensive low volume devices that could offer similar capabilities.

I can also see enormous scope for further development of this technology eg convergence with the rugged & water resistant (washable) designs like that offered by the Magellan Toughcase:
