Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the world’s number one killer. According to data from the WHO, 17.9 million people die each year from CVDs, 85% of all CVD-related deaths are due to heart attacks and strokes.
Wearable ECG devices are a reasonable option for long-term rhythm surveillance in patients with cardiovascular diseases.Wearable ECG (EKG) devices have consistently demonstrated their non-inferiority in detecting arrhythmias. They are normally used for basic heart monitoring, simple educational or research purposes.
What is single-lead monitoring?
Single-lead ECG monitoring has been a favored method for recording ECG with handheld or wearable devices. An adhesive patch-type ECG monitoring device is easier to use and more capable of recording ECG for an extended period than Holter monitoring.
Single-lead wearable ECG devices have become available for personal, home, and sports use.They can be used by the general public for personal information recording, routine monitoring, or during uncommon events.
The recordings can then be shared with health providers or, for non-emergency or simple monitoring purposes, used by the individual themselves if they able to interpret them.
Wearable ECG Devices Enabling Remote Patient Monitoring
Advanced technologies support remote patient monitoring and telehealth applications with single-lead wearable ECG devices. The devices have the ability to improve patient care and reduce healthcare costs, often resulting in a shorter time to diagnosis and lower rates of ED visits.
Mintti Heartbook is an intelligent medical-grade wearable ECG monitor that continuously measures vital signs including one channel ECG, heart rate, respiration rate and body posture without requiring user intervention.
With a smartphone app and a Cloud-based platform, Mintti Heartbook builds up the patient’s exclusive chronic disease management platform, providing a simple and efficient mobile cardiac telemetry solution for patients and healthcare providers.
Single-lead wearable electrocardiographic (ECG) devices for remote monitoring are emerging as critical components of the viability of long-term continuous health and wellness monitoring applications.
