Computer technology without the computer? The ECG@Home monitoring system delivers instant heart rhythm capture with or without a computer, making it the perfect tool for home patient monitoring.
With minimal instructions, patients are able to obtain a rhythm strip and transmit the data transtelephonically to the doctor, hospital, or clinic, without the need for a computer.
Ease of use is such that no assistance is required by patients in order to obtain and send the data. For patients who are unable to hold the monitor still with both hands for the approximately 45 seconds it takes to obtain the information, a visiting nurse, home health aide, or even a family member can be readily taught to obtain the data and transmit the data just as easily.
The ECG@Home monitor is compact, lightweight, and so easy to use, anyone from age 10 to 100 can use this cutting edge technology for extended, at-home (or on-the-go) cardiac monitoring.
