Alivecor - mobile EKG device
What it is: Kardia is a mobile EKG device that captures a medical-grade EKG in just 30-seconds from anywhere, anytime.
Why it's innovative: Kardia is smaller than a credit card, and is currently the most clinically-validated mobile EKG available. With Kardia, patients can capture reliable heart activity data and relay it to doctors to inform diagnosis and treatment plans. Kardia easily tracks palpitations, shortness of breath, dietary habits, sleep and exercise patterns.
How it works: Kardia comes with small electrodes that, when touched for 30-seconds, provide a medical-grade EKG. See a short video about how it works here.
