Tech for your heart: AliveCor's Kardia Mobile

Techstination feature for Thursday, January 5, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.   A company called AliveCor is out with a  smartphone gadget that monitors your heart.   And it could help to save your life.   It is called the Kardia Mobile….Kardia spelled with a K….and it is designed to take an electrocardiogram…on the spot.     Chief operating officer Doug Biehn…

“It goes wherever you go, whether you put it in your wallet or on your actual smartphone.  And within thirty seconds, the application that is medical grade, FDA cleared, will tell you within thirty seconds whether your heart is in normal sinus rhythm or in possible atrial fibrillation.  It allows you to share that information in real time with your doctor or any doctor on our platform.”

The Kardia Mobile uses sound, not Bluetooth, to communicate with your phone, so you don’t have to go through a pairing procedure.    It sells for 99 dollars.   You can find us at Techstination.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
