AliveCor develops and manufactures personal ECG devices that work with smartphones and tablets via the Kardia app. KardiaMobile provides live, diagnostic quality, ECG recordings with a real time trace, anytime anywhere, taking just 30 seconds. It accurately detects common arrhythmias, including atrial fibrillation, and measures heart rate too.
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 KardiaMobile device, it’s always with them and allows them to monitor and record events as they happen. The recordings can then be instantly emailed to the clinician who can make a rapid diagnosis and commence the appropriate therapy (such as anticoagulation) as soon as possible, in turn, greatly reducing the risk of further associated problems, such as stroke.
