AliveCor designs and manufactures miniaturised ECG devices that are used with smartphones and tablets (Kardia Mobile) or the Apple Watch (Kardia Band). Producing real-time, on-screen diagnostic quality ECG, Kardia accurately detects AF and other arrhythmias enabling clinicians and patients to record anytime and anywhere, capturing intermittent symptoms as they occur. By using the power of AI, the company has developed algorithms that not only detect arrythmias, but in the near future will also be able to detect hyperkalaemia simply by taking a thirty second ECG recording. A new six lead version of the Kardia Mobile will soon be available providing significantly greater information on a patient’s heart health.
