AliveCor UK Ltd
Type of organisation: Medical Technology & Diagnostics
AliveCor develops and manufactures miniaturised ECG devices that work with smartphones, tablets and the Apple Watch. Kardia Mobile can be attached to your phone to provide live diagnostic quality ECG recordings with a real time trace, anytime anywhere, taking just 30 seconds. It accurately detects atrial fibrillation and measures (AF) heart rate too. The recordings can be emailed and stored for review by a clinician.
As AF is often intermittent, it can be hard to detect, and an accurate diagnosis can be a prolonged process. However, if a patient carries a Kardia on their phone, it’s always with them and they catch events as they happen. The recordings can then be instantly emailed to the clinician who can make a rapid diagnosis and commence anticoagulant therapy as soon as possible. The risk of an AF related stroke for that patient is therefore greatly reduced.
