VIDEO: Use of Wearable Medical Devices for Cardiac Rehabilitation

Robert Klempfner, M.D., director of the Cardiovascular Prevention Institute, Sheba Medical Center, Israel,  discusses his center's use of wearable devices to manage a remote cardiac rehabilitation program. He spoke on the topic at 2019 Healthcare Information Management and Systems Society at (HIMSS) conference.   

Sheba Medical Center in Israel has adopted an app that interfaces with various wearables and Bluetooth-enabled patient monitoring devices to create remote cardiac rehabilitation and heart failure programs. It now remotely monitors hundreds of patients and does not require them to come to the hospital for sessions, which has helped increase patient satisfaction and aided in increasing physical activity compliance. The app is able to transfer device data to an EMR so progress and tasks assigned to patients can be monitored without the need for them to come into the hospital for sessions. Klempfner recently wrote a paper on this topic

The X5-1c transducer from Philips provides enhanced clinical information in transthoracic imaging over a standard phased array transducer. When combined with nSIGHT Plus image formation on the EPIQ CVx cardiology ultrasound system, the X5-1c transducer enables image quality rarely seen from a transthoracic transducer. 

Watch the video to learn about the benefits which may include decreased exam time due to faster access to echo windows, increased confidence in quantification results and more.
