IneedMD Inc.'s EKG Glove Named in Top 4 Battlefield Medical Technology Innovations

IneedMD Inc. ECG EKG Glove

May 27, 2014 — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared EKG Glove by IneedMD Inc., based in New York, has been recognized as one of the most cutting edge medical technologies ready to save lives in battlefield situations. Named among the Ultrasonic Tourniquet and the HemCon bandage, the EKG Glove designed by IneedMD's co-founder Govindan Gopinathan, M.D., was identified as one of the most powerful medical technology innovations that can be applied to saving lives in combat. In an article written by James Scott on the popular federal contractor website GovCon.net the technology is explained as, "One of the most exciting recent innovations" to come onto the ECG and medical technology scene.

The EKG Glove has gained accelerated attention after a meeting with Relyant CMO and retired Army General Steven Anderson who stated, "It's simple, this technology will save lives." The company has been making their rounds throughout K-Street while evaluating multiple federal contractor teaming arrangements for optimal and expedited distribution to the VA and DoD. This cost affective and disposable technology takes only seconds to apply can be plugged into a mobile device or laptop to monitor the condition of the patient and due to its light weight and size, the EKG Glove is the most mobile ECG technology in the world today.

"I had the misfortune of being on a boat and witnessing a friend have a heart attack and three weeks later he was found dead," explained Gopinathan. "This left a lasting impression on my mind and I was determined to create a 'gadget' that could record an ECG regardless of your location. People with heart conditions need to be able to monitor their heart rate without the cumbersome cords and heavy equipment." A decade later the EKG Glove became a reality and is rapidly gaining the support and attention of the medical technology community.

IneedMD's goal is to provide the EKG Glove to the military, hospitals and retirement communities as a convenient and lightweight alternative to the traditional ECG machine. "This article on GovCon.net has placed us in a position to receive targeted attention from the federal contractor community and more important, the Military Veteran community," explained Gopinathan, "and now our technology can start falling in the hands of those it was designed to help."

Use of traditional Holter monitor leads can be an issue for patient compliance and comfort. The newer generation ambulatory cardiac monitors use an adhesive patch that sticks directly on the patient's chest and allows them to shower and go about daily activities without a belt mounted monitor or leads getting in the way. This is especially important for longer term monitoring of seven days or longer.
