FDA Clears Android-based continuous ECG monitor

eMotionThe FDA has recently cleared Mega Electronics’ eMotion ECG Mobile, a Finnish continuous ECG monitor that connects to Android smartphones. eMotion ECG Mobile is designed to be prescribed by a doctor and worn continuously under a patient’s clothing. It continuously sends ECG readings to the user’s Android smartphone via Bluetooth and, from there, sends the data over the mobile network to a server. The patient’s clinician can then access readings via a web browser. eMotion ECG Mobile can even send the clinician an alarm when it detects irregular  heart rate reading.
