Indian Innovators Launch a Single Lead, Wireless Lightweight Ambulatory Cardiac Monitor
Biocalculus helps clinicians to procure and analyze cardiac rhythm abnormalities outside the clinical environment and enhance patients care.
Commenting on the launch of the product, Biocalculus, Mrs.Sonia Mohandas, CEO of Waferchips said,"Our product offers sustained monitoring of consistent ECG / EKG data with minimal artifacts and is specifically designed and optimized for cardiologists who need to improve their diagnostic yield. Our device can be seen as a bio-sieve for doctors to ensure enhanced patient care for the bottom of pyramid."
In 2016, the Global Burden of Diseases reported that cardiovascular disease contributed to 28% of deaths in India as against the 15% of recorded cases in 1990. This alarming increase in the death rate from cardiovascular disease is worrisome. Biocalculus was, therefore invented to help people, regardless of their socio-economic classes, get access to quality care and minimizing cardiovascular-
Most test results of cardiac-related symptoms, such as syncope and palpitation, come out as inconclusive because patients reach the hospital after the episode. To make a correct diagnosis, ECG /EKG readings need to be taken while the patient is experiencing palpitation or pain. Therefore, it is important to continuously monitor the Heart rhythm for a duration based on the symptom frequency of the patient. However, conventional solutions like holters and event recorders mostly fail to do this because of short duration of monitoring period, high cost and poor patient compliance. Biocalculusis trying to fill this gap in the cardiology segment by providing an affordable solution that also helps continuous long-term monitoring for early detection of cardiac symptoms.
