Whether it is in the utilisation via telemedicine or better ways to do an ECG test, MedTech Edge provides new technologies for the benefit of clinicians and patients alike.
MedTech Edge is working with Healthwatch, the pioneers in wearable cardiology devices. A team of textile and medical experts created the shirt which monitors heart activity and sends alerts of abnormalities directly to patients and their doctors on their mobile phones. The shirts, which are wearable in everyday situations and machine washable, incorporate a twelve lead electrocardiogram.
There’s also a pocket to hold a transmitter which sends signals to a cloud-based database. Doctors can pick up problems like arrhythmia or a patient falling over as they go about their day-to-day lives.
HealthWatch turns personalized medicine into reality by blending state-of-the-art textile and computer technologies for hospital quality Sensing and Alerting.
