Scientists in India Develop Credit Card-Sized ECG Device

Scientists at the Bhabha Atomic Research Center have developed a credit card-sized Tele-ECG machine that can transmit an ECG over any smartphone to any part of the world. This 12-channel ECG machine works on an Android-platform, can be recharged via a mobile charger, and is priced at $61. It is likely the smallest of its kind.

“The quality of the ECG is excellent and it has come to me in two to three different formats for me to view,” Dr. Hemant Haldavnekar, a consulting physician, said.

“This is a small low-cost ECG machine that on a single charge can record 300 ECGs. It is rightly suited for rural areas,” the developer of the tele-ECG machine, Vineet Sinha, scientist, Bhabha Atomic Research Center, Mumbai, said reports NDTV.
