The Medicalgorithmics PocketECG Holter monitor offers real-time, remote, wireless ECG recording and tracking.

The Medicalgorithmics PocketECG Holter monitor offers real-time, remote, wireless ECG recording and tracking. Real-time data review may be able to help diagnose an arrhythmia quickly, reducing the amount of time the patient needs to be monitored. Also, 24/7 data offers a more complete picture of the patient's health, rather than fragments of data from older Holter and event monitor systems.
