AliveCor Heart Monitor
Compatible with iPhone® 4, 4S and 5
ECG Screening Made Easy - Simple. Powerful. Accurate.
Full product description
EASY TO USE
To generate a Lead I ECG, rest the electrodes on the fingers from each hand (iPhone Home button should be on the right). The app senses skin contact on the sensors and when an acceptable connection is made it counts down to initiate the ECG recording. Set your app to take 30 second, and up to continuous, rhythm strips. While the ECG records it will also display heart rate. ECGs over 10 seconds are automatically saved in the app for review and can be annotated with details or can be discarded. ECGs can be inverted if needed and gain and paper speed adjusted as well.
In clinical trials, AliveCor’s Heart Monitor demonstrated clinical efficacy. The Heart Monitor is an ideal tool for quick, accurate screening and recording.
Our clinical-quality, single-channel ECG recorder leverages the power, display, and communication capabilities of the iPhone 4, 4S and 5. The Heart Monitor does not use power from the iPhone, but utilizes a 3.0V coin cell battery that will take roughly 8,000, 30-second ECGs before needing replacement. The Heart Monitor also uses AliveCor’s proprietary wireless communication protocol to communicate with the app, and requires no pairing between the iPhone and the Heart Monitor.
Now you have an ECG recorder at your fingertips that goes wherever you go. Within seconds you are able to acquire a single-channel rate and rhythm assessment.
