The nECG platform allows for the capture of a dynamic ECG via an innovative system that is cost-effective, wearable, remote, continuous and non-invasive. In addition, this same system can be used simultaneously for both individuals and large numbers of patients.
The product platform is based on a proprietary biomedical e-textile BlendFix® sensor electrode technology that is easy-to-use (low physician involvement), with minimal impact on patient lifestyle, and capable of being used in real-time and for continuous recording.
The sophisticated and highly automated analysis software uses beat-by-beat QRS detection and an artificial intelligence algorithm to classify and detect ECG anomalies. This provides a new opportunity in the cardiac space: remote ECG monitoring in environments with high levels of physical activity, such as sports.
Platform 3 key elements
1. nECG SHIRT
Due to the innovative and proprietary textile electrode technology, Blendfix® sensor, the biomedical nECG SHIRT allows for easy capture of a patient’s ECG under all conditions; sleeping, resting, walking and demanding physical activity.
Nuubo’s innovative wireless cardiac monitoring system based on biomedical e-textile technology allows for the capture of a dynamic ECG in an easy and non-invasive way even in environments with high levels of physical activity, such as sports. The electrocardiographic signal captured by the Blendfix® sensor electrodes will be registered by the attachable wireless device, nECG MINDER. This signal will then be processed by the analysis software, nECG SUITE.

Including bio compatibility.
2. nECG MINDER
The nECG MINDER is a wireless medical device that registers information captured by the nECG SHIRT allowing it to be sent remotely in real time.
The nECG MINDER registers the patient’s ECG signal through the Blendfix® sensor electrodes of the nECG SHIRT, as well as other body information such as position (angle/posture) and patient’s physical activity. This information is recorded on the removable micro-SD card and can also be sent in real time using Bluetooth® wireless technology to a PC / laptop, table or mobile. This information will be processed and analysed using the nECG SUITE software.
Communications: Bluetooth® wireless technology, v2.0 + EDR compliant, Class I (up to 200m outdoor range) ECG: Single-channel, sampling rate 250 sps (12-bits), bandwidth 0.05-100Hz Accelerometry: Triaxial accelerometer, sampling rate 50 sps (12-bits), bandwidth 0-5 Hz, dynamic range +/- 3g, inclination angle/posture and patient’s physical activity level Data storage: 2GB capacity (removable micro-SD card, stores up to 22 days in continuous recording mode) Heart rate transmitter: Measurement range 30-240 bpm, compatible with HR monitors utilising 5 kHz transmission technology RTC: Real time clock (UTC time) Modes: 3-position switch: wireless (real-time), off/charging, continuous recording Leds: 4-status leds and bicolour led for battery charge Buzzer: Sound alerts (battery status, storage capacity and wireless connection) Dimensions: 50 x 77.2 x 19.3 mm Weight: 54g (with battery) Power: Rechargeable lithium-ion battery, mini-USB connector for the battery charge Class: IIa (according to medical device regulation) Type: CF Quality and Safety: CE 0120 marking according to MMD 93/42/EEC, meet requirements of EN60601-1:2008, EN60601-1-2:2007 and UNE-EN55011:2008
3. nECG SUITE
The nECG SUITE is the visualisation and analysis software that manages information registered or transmitted by the wireless device, nECG MINDER.
The analysis software nECG SUITE allows the processing of all the information registered or transmitted through the nECG MINDER. The system offers the possibility to visualise a multitude of graphics offering contextualisation from the electrocardiograph signal. The software also contains reporting tools that help with diagnosis and HRV analysis.

AMA Medical Products is a local supplier and national distributor of diagnostic medical equipment.
National distribution lines include the Edan Instruments range of Diagnostic Medical Equipment, that includes Patient Monitors and Foetal and Maternal Monitors and the newly launched NUUBO: Wireless Cardiac Monitoring system.
Through a well established, national distribution network, both the EDAN equipment range and NUUBO wireless ECG system are made available and supplied into hospital and primary care facilities in every Australian state and territory.
The Patient Monitors for Hospitals and Primary Care facilities include the EDAN M3A and M3 Vital Signs Monitors, M9, M50, M80 and V8 Multiparameter Patient Monitors, SE1010 PC Based ECG and H100B Pulse Oximeters.
The Foetal and Maternal Monitors range includes the EDAN Sonotrax Basic A and Sonotrax Pro II hand-held, Foetal Heart Rate monitors, that are also available with 8MHz transducers for Vascular Doppler studies. The EDAN SD5 and SD6 table-top Doppler Machines with wireless capability also form part of the Foetal Heart Rate equipment range.
The EDAN F-Series Cardiotocographs- CTG's, complete the Foetal and Maternal Monitoring portfolio. EDAN CTG options include F3, F3-Twin, F6, F6-Twin and F9, F9-Express models that permit antenatal, intranatal and postnatal foetal and maternal monitoring for single and twin births.
The EDAN C6 Colposcope is the latest addition to the EDAN range. Launched in January 2013 the C6 is a video colposcope, with up to 36 x magnification and three green filters. The little sister of the C6 is the EDAN C3 Video Colposcope.
NUUBO is a revolutionary cardiac diagnostic and monitoring solution. Its 3-part system allows for dynamic, remote, wireless cardiac monitoring- from anywhere at anytime. Sensors built into wearable garments detect and send cardiac rhythms to the nMinder hub that stores data in either live or holter modes.
