AliveCor Inc.'s AliveCor Heart Monitor is a single-channel ECG (electrocardiogram) recorder. The AliveCor Heart Monitor provides people with suspected or diagnosed heart conditions, and those at risk of heart conditions, the ability to track their heart health anytime, anywhere, at an affordable cost. Health professionals and patients have reported using the device to detect, monitor and analyze irregular heart rhythms. The AliveCor Heart Monitor’s medical grade ECG recordings can be shared directly with a user’s physician, or sent to a U.S. board-certified cardiologist or a U.S. based cardiac technician. It does so through AliveInsights, an analysis service that offers expert review of ECGs directly through the free AliveECG app. Recordings are then reviewed and analyzed providing users with a more complete picture of their current heart health. The AliveCor Heart Monitor supports both iPhone and Android smartphones. It records, displays, stores and transfers single-channel ECG rhythms wirelessly. With secure storage in the cloud, users can access their data confidentially anytime, anywhere, and can grant access to their physician. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted AliveCor Inc. over-the-counter (OTC) clearance for the AliveCor Heart Monitor in February 2014. For more information:
