A new cardiovascular monitoring device will aim to improve cardiovascular health monitoring with unobtrusive designs.
It can be carried or worn by patients as they go about their daily routine, with the collected data able to be transmitted wirelessly to healthcare professionals and family members.
The device will take the form of a strap worn around the torso to provide continuous electrocardiogram (EKG) monitoring, heart rate, physical activity and skin temperature. Wires, buttons, patches and gels will be eliminated to produce a device that will clip on underneath clothing so can be worn throughout the day to provide continuous monitoring.
