AliveCor has announced the launch of KardiaMobile Card—an electrocardiogram (ECG) device the size of a standard credit card.
“After disrupting traditional ECG monitoring with our game-changing Kardia platform, we have now achieved the unprecedented milestone of creating the first-ever credit-card-sized personal ECG,” said Priya Abani, CEO of AliveCor. “KardiaMobile Card delivers the most sophisticated AI in the most convenient form factor ever, putting the power of real-time ECG analysis directly in patients’ wallets and furthering our vision of becoming the 24/7 virtual cardiologist for patients when they are not in front of their physician.”
KardiaMobile Card pairs with a smartphone using Bluetooth technology to detect six of the most common arrhythmias. KardiaMobile Card users also have access to cardiologist analyses of ECGs, monthly heart health reports, and automatic sharing of ECG recordings. The device’s algorithm is based on AliveCor’s AI-enabled Kardia technology, which has been evaluated by more than 170 peer-reviewed studies.
“The availability of a personal ECG that fits in a wallet will change the face of remote cardiac monitoring for patients and healthcare professionals alike,” said Darria Long Gillespie, emergency physician and clinical assistant professor of emergency medicine (University of Tennessee, Knoxville, USA) AliveCor ambassador, and founder of the TrueveLab. “As someone who lives with ventricular tachycardia and has treated patients with arrhythmias, I know how critical it is to access accurate ECG recordings in real time. KardiaMobile Card has made this technology even easier to access, and it has quickly become the most valuable card in my wallet.”
