Medical electronics need to be designed in a manner that these not only provide accurate health data but are also easy to use. This enables quick and efficient diagnosis of ailments. Keeping this in mind, Taiwan-based Singular Wings Medical has developed a tracking device for cardiovascular diseases the size of a band aid, called CardiNova Heart Disease Recorder. The wireless non-intrusive device can be connected to the chest using the patch-like fabric on which the Analyzer is mounted. There is a button at the front of the device, which, when pressed, starts device operation. Two electrodes (visible on back) pick up cardiovascular readings as electrical signals. A microprocessor unit processes signal data. Results can be seen in real time over a proprietary mobile application. The proprietary algorithm helps eliminate the noise created by motion, contact deviation and the like, and pick up precise signal readings. Data provides quick reference information for health, including heart beat rate, fitness level, user mood and behavior, cardiac rhythm information and more. While wearing CardiNova, the user can turn on monitoring at the slightest feeling of discomfort, so that any impending problem can be identified, and immediate action taken. “We minimized the form factor and made setting up of the device easy. A family member or doctor can monitor data and identify a problem as soon as it occurs. The algorithm can summarize the report by learning from huge amounts of data accumulated from long-term measurement. It eases the process of detecting the main symptom directly. It also raises an alarm and sends notifications to stored contacts in case of an emergency, so that immediate action can be taken,” explains a spokesperson from Singular Wings Medical. The spokesperson adds, “The system has been tested to ensure that sensors pick up signals accurately. A commercial chip is used for processing the data. Bluetooth module enables connectivity with a smartphone.” Data can also be stored on a commercial cloud platform. The company has also brought forward a full line of smartwear suits, with CardiNova monitor embedded in the chest area. Fabric of the suit is elastic, and it soaks and dries moisture, and keeps the user comfortable. Area of fabric around the monitoring device can sense and transmit cardiovascular signals. CardiNova can be highly useful for those with preexisting cardiovascular diseases or those with a surgical history. Hospitals can monitor patient health in real time with the device. It can also be used for other purposes. For example, a sportsperson can monitor his/her fitness condition, or an end user can stay aware about his/her general physical health. Singular Wings Medical is selling CardiNova through their distributor network globally.
The proportion of people with cardiovascular diseases increases in recent years. Many people have cardiovascular-related diseases or surgical history. Occasional dizziness, chest or physical discomfort may be early sign of deterioration. However, it is easily be ignored when in work or in daily chores. Moreover, in Chinese culture, people do not want others to know that they are seriously sick. “CardiNova-Heart Disease Recorder” is a smart recorder for cardiovascular symptoms. The size is as small as a band-aid. It is inconspicuous and with least effect to the life. Once the user is discomfort, he can press the button which sends biomedical information by the internet. The biomedical information can also be viewed by a general practitioner or a medical professional technician. It is a novel product of wearable medical treatment which reduces the risk of sudden death from cardiovascular diseases.
