The Problem:

Non availability of wireless wearable device for cardiac patients as a replacement of conventional ECG and Holter device resulting in an unpredictable cardiac arrhythmia onset, along with presence of asymptomatic events leading to poor patient compliance and improper evaluation of collected data.

The Solution:

The proposal aims to develop a wireless wearable device for cardiac patients as a replacement of conventional ECG and Holter device. The proposed device is claimed to be significantly, cheaper leading to enhance affordability and improved user experience and compliance. It is proposed to use a single patch made of breathable polymeric material with long lasting adhesion to capture the signal, which otherwise are sensed through multiple locations in the body, using conventional protocols.
