#27 of 100 - Cardiasense
Hundreds of millions of people worldwide suffer from hypertension (high blood pressure), yet only a few have it under control. These people need constant monitoring.
CardiacSense has developed the first medical watch of its kind for remote monitoring of health measurements, deterioration of chronically ill patients, vital parameters and detecting cardiac arrhythmia.
The watch is based on a combination of unique patent-protected technology that was developed by the company to read optical indicators together with temperature, movement, pressure and other sensors, which allows constant monitoring of the vital physical measurements of patients such as temperature, respiratory rate, blood pressure, blood oxygen saturation and pulse at the uniquely precise level equivalent to an ECG.
CardiacSense’s Watch is designed to replace expensive, complex and invasive monitoring equipment and allow convenient, constant and effective monitoring over time at any time and place including outside of hospitals and clinics. Thus, the company is leading the response for the growing global demand for remote monitoring solutions and home hospitalization, both during the coronavirus crisis and ordinary times, as part of the global trend of switching to online community digital healthcare.
In the event that the CardiacSense Watch detects a heart arrhythmia (such as A-Fib), cardiac arrest or threshold-crossing blood pressure values, it sends an alert, for timely provision of the necessary medical intervention.
Eldad Shemesh, CardiacSense Founder and CEO commented:
"Our clinical results speak for themselves with unprecedented success in precise measuring, to a level of 99%, of heart arrhythmias using a wearable medical wristwatch, as part of a clinical trial conducted in three medical centers in Israel and abroad.”
Having grown up in a country with one of the highest rates of heart disease and hypertension in the western world, the 2Scots team are delighted to help spread the word about Cardiacsense and their life-saving work.
