New Wireless EKG System Monitors Cardiac Patients

Source: Mobilevillage News 

Memphis, TN, May 7, 2003 -- Airstream Research Concepts, an R&D company based in Tennessee, today announced HeartScan, a new wireless EKG prototype telematics system. HeartScan is made up of a hardware/software component worn by the patient much like current holter monitor systems.

HeartScan's wireless GPRS radio modem allows the patient and the doctor to send or retrieve a live trace. The system's second component is a web based information center where doctors can store all the patient data and traces, annotate and markup incoming patient data in real time, and manage a variety of alert possibilities. 

According to CEO Jason Braverman, Airstream is currently working on Phase Two of the development which will introduce new features into the system, including a 14 day memory capacity for the portable ECG unit, allowing up to 14 days of uninterrupted traces to be recorded. The company is also looking for a partner to market the product.
