Waldo Health is currently developing a new telecardiology system.
The prototype of the system was demonstrated at the American Telemedicine Association Meeting, which was held from the 1st to 3rd of May in Tampa. The system facilitates taking an electrocardiogram at home without the need for professional assistance on-site.
The telecardiography system is a combination of three vital technologies, namely, Bio harness from Zeohyr Technology, Kinetic Rhythms from Monebo technologies and Waldo’s Health system. Bio Harness uses the Smart Fabric sensor technology that is an easy and comfortable to wear, wireless chest strap consisting of a dry-electrode, which transmits the physiological data of the patient. The Kinetic Rhythms is an ECG algorithm, through which automatic data analysis like rhythm identification and data trending is accomplished. This type of organized data is very useful for the physician during the health checkup. With ECG being the most accepted and widely used diagnostic method, the remote cardiac telemonitoring system would be an easy to use device for the patient and the physician would also be provided with vital measurements that help in assessing the patient’s cardiac system.
Health monitoring systems from Waldo are easy to use, affordable and come with a personalized touch screen interface that can be modified to suit the user’s convenience. Some of the useful features that the system offers are a reminder for taking medicines and option of tracking critical signs specific to the ailment. Other highlighting features include high-quality voice and video conferencing, compact size and portability. The measured data is transmitted via WiFi, Ethernet or 3G/4G; from here the designated physician can access the data either by using internet or wireless phones with the help of the Waldo Clinician Access System. Through the video conferencing facility, the clinician can connect with the patient and give the necessary medical advice.
