Novel Cardiac Vest Measures ECG in Rough Places

Jan. 10, 2007 — Signalife Inc. says it has completed development of a one-of-a-kind cardiac vest that utilizes Signalife's patented signal amplification technology to allow for precise ECG monitoring of athletes and patients in harsh ambulatory environments.

Signalife will now proceed to submit the vest for accelerated FDA clearance and rapid movement to commercial availability.

Featured on Nov. 30, 2006, in an NBC Today Show's segment ("Modern Medical Miracles"), the vest has been extensively utilized in testing in the Champ Car World Series open cockpit racing. During these tests, the ECG signals have allowed physicians to evaluate data previously unavailable when captured in the very harsh environment of a racecar.

The Signalife proprietary vest features dry (e.g., quarter-size, metal) electrodes embedded in a cloth fabric which provide better comfort and reduced skin irritation for a large percentage of the clients or patients. The company says it is not aware of any other system that can acquire a similar ECG signal in any ambulatory environment with the use the metal electrodes compatible with Signalife's cardiac vest.
