ECG and Wearables

What is an Electrocardiogram (ECG)?

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a simple test that checks the rhythm and electrical activity of your heart. The electrical signals produced by your heart each time it beats are detected by sensors placed to your skin.

An ECG is frequently used in conjunction with other tests to diagnose and monitor heart problems. It can be used to look into symptoms including chest pain, palpitations (quickly perceptible heartbeats), dizziness, and shortness of breath that could indicate a heart condition.

Does PLUX Biosignals have an ECG sensor?

Yes. We currently have three ECG sensors in our product portfolio to meet market demand in areas such as education and advanced research. 🙂

For the BITalino product line, we offer an ECG sensor with UC-E6 connectors to make it attachable to your BITalino Plugged Kit. Additionally, there is also an ECG with everything assembled, which already includes the cable and a reference point.

For the biosignalsplux product line, we have a Pro ECG sensor that is compatible with the 4-, 8- and Hybrid-8 Hubs that provides medical-grade raw sensor data.

Is there a market need for a Wearable ECG?

There are already a few options in our sensor portfolio to fill the needs that have been arising in recent years, though we feel that the Hub-Cable-Sensor combination isn't always the best. For some applications, we could use a different approach to facilitate the acquisition of medical grade ECG data.

Applications that involve a lot of movement deserve an adequate form of data that would benefit a designed solution. We might have something in line in the next few weeks. Stay Tuned!😉

We hope this article was informative to you and provided helpful information on ECGs and also gave you a hint on what is yet to come!
