It does so by using a small disposable biosensor array attached to a miniaturised transmitter connecting the patient and doctor using cell phone networks and the world-wide web.
Cardiac events, either benign or of significance, are recorded and interpreted as they occur and transmitted to the web server automatically where the physician is notified by email, fax or SMS text.
The unique feature of the system is the "on board" analysis of every heartbeat and the transmission of only "beats of interest" as selected by clinicians on their individual V-Central web registration screen.
- No leads or wires, reducing artefact error by over 90%
- Real-time data transmission via mobile network
- An Event Monitor
- Suitable for hospital, home or remote monitoring
- Self-activating if parameter thresholds are breached
- Cost-effective solution for remote long-term monitoring
Is a multi-patented disposable patch, loaded with biosensors and applied to the chest near the heart for the collection of data on a variety of vital signs including 3-channel ECG.
A small, non obtrusive, non-disposable two-way RF transceiver with on board micro-processor and memory to monitor, store and analyse data collected by the VPatch in real time. The V-Pod forwards the information it has gathered automatically to a hand held device (the V-Cell).
A pocket sized device which uses a proprietary RF receiver and a cellular phone engine to connect the patient to the world wide web. The V-Cell communicates utilising dynamic IP's and GPRS transmission to a variety of web applications, one of which is called V-Central.
This is a proprietary server based software system which is accessed over the internet. Once the V-Patch senses an event or is activated by the patient, information is sent to V-Central automatically. The information is programmed and forwarded to the treating physician or monitoring service in either basic or enhanced data format over the world wide web.
V-Central also facilitates two way communication with the V-Patch and enables reprogramming for arrhythmias or redirection of the data flow.
