Unique hardware of combined ECG and bioimpedance analogue front-end for registration of bioelectrical signals of the body using the palms of the hands of the patient

Unique hardware of combined ECG and bio-impedance analogue front-end for registration of bioelectrical signals of the body using the palms of the hands of the patient. The industrialized unit provides unique features for remote patient monitoring previously available in hospital settings (ECG with matching-beat hemodynamic data: volume/pressure curve in aortic arch, stroke volume, diastolic decay profile in aortic arch, reflecting pressure wave position etc). Bio-impedance feature provides also for body composition measurements including body fat and water content. The measurement of water content can be utilized for cases of COPD or heart failure patients where small changes in body weight as a result of dehydration carry valuable information.

The unique technological solution is specially suited for remote patient monitoring applications, allowing for registrations conducted by patient at the time and place when need dictates or heart related complication occurs. Small footprint combined ECG and bio-impedance analogue front-end is available as manufactured PCB for OEM deployment.
