Thanks to Alivecor the Apple Watch can now record a Patients ECG & symptom information

Dr Dave Albert, Cardiologist & founder of Alivecor, demonstrates the Apple Watch ECG prototype from Alivecor with Leslie Saxon MD, Clinical Scholar & Executive Director of the University of Southern California’s Centre for Body Computing at the annual Body Computing Conference being held today in Los Angeles (Twitter hastag to follow is #uscbcc9).

It should be obvious that Patients and Carers around the world are going to love this but it’s still hard to imagine that as a result of the economies of scale and the R&D budgets that only the mobile industry can bring to bear this type of tech might be featured on a smartwatch as powerful as the Apple Watch that costs as little as $7 in just a few short years!

When you see the clumsy remote monitoring boxes being produced by the world’s leading medical device companies isn’t it refreshing to see this latest discrete innovation from Alivecor looking just like the Born Mobile generation would go about designing a cardiac monitoring service?
