X
Portable heart-rate monitor in the form of a slender case that fits around the outside of a mobile phone. The user touches the case’s electrode sensors; the app senses skin contact, and begins an (electrocardiogram) ECG recording. Displays, stores, and wirelessly transfers the user’s ECG readings. This data is stored ‘in the cloud’, and can be accessed by the user, or by the user’s doctor. For simple heart monitoring, checking for arrhythmias, and calculating heart rate. Can be prescribed by doctors for their patients, or purchased over the counter by patients. A true medical device that has received both FDA clearance (allowing it to be sold in the US), and CE mark conformity (allowing for sale within the European Union). Powered by a 3-volt coin cell (battery life approximately 100 hours operational use; 12 months standby).

Reviewer: Arrhythmia Alliance (AA), UK
Review:

The ‘AliveECG’ works in conjunction with the free AliveECG app and is designed for medical professionals, patients and health-conscious individuals to record, display, store and transfer single-channel electrocardiogram (ECG) readings. These recordings could be saved on the mobile device or shared with others (such as your doctor) via email. AliveCor’s Heart Monitor has been used in several clinical trials, and demonstrated accuracy and efficiency to produce a single-channel rate-and-rhythm assessment. Arrhythmia Alliance members have the chance to purchase the app with an exclusive discount of £5, using voucher code ‘hrc2013a’ when bought from Amazon. A percentage of the sale will also be given to Arrhythmia Alliance.”

Reviewer: Aphasia Hope Foundation (AHF), USA
Review: “Ways the iPhone saves lives: another iPhone device recently cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration for sale to licensed medical professionals and prescribed patients in the US is AliveCor’s Heart Monitor. The device looks like an iPhone case, and works with the corresponding free mobile app, AliveECG. The case snaps onto the back of your iPhone to record and display your heart rhythm. Your electrocardiogram (ECG) rhythms are produced by placing the case against your chest or pressing your fingers on sensors. The data can be transferred wirelessly, allowing your doctor to screen for potentially dangerous arrhythmias, such as atrial fibrillation (AFib). AFib affects an estimated 2.7 million Americans, and significantly increases the risk for stroke—and strokes associated with AFib are often serious, or even fatal. A 2012 study published by the American Heart Association (AHA) examined the effectiveness of the AliveCor Heart Monitor app and concluded that the single-lead ECG can be rapidly and simply recorded with the iPhone app. The researchers noted the app could help accurately diagnose AFib, and reduce the rate of related strokes.”
