ECG patch to speed up detection of cardiac arrhythmia
Cardiovascular disease has been attributed to 31 % of all global deaths. Holter systems for electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring are usually used for early disease detection and medical intervention but over 80 % of cardiac arrhythmias cannot be detected by these systems. Through the HeartService project, a patient will wear a patch containing an ECG monitor that provides accurate and timely data to a service centre for diagnosis by cardiologists. The cost-effective patch and data services will be introduced in 2019, while the grant will be used to determine best strategies for the product’s dissemination in EU countries.
