In the world of wearables, one size does not fit all...especially for heart monitors that are responsible for detecting early signs of heart disease and strokes. It is impossible to trust a device to deliver accurate and fast measurements when it neglects to appropriately fit the body it is strapped to. Cambridge Heartwear sought to change that, working alongside Loft to develop the multi-lead Heartsense ECG that offers a minimal, comfortable, and most importantly, gender-inclusive alternative to the standard Holter monitor.
With a sleek and minimal design, the device combines wearable heart monitoring technology with real time data and artificial intelligence to deliver immediate results to your smartphone. Unlike other chest wearables in the medical industry, it was built with every body, including breast tissue, in mind. The goal was to miniaturize the product and eliminate the external presence of electrodes that are typically connected to the wearer’s chest, therefore giving female users free movement, the ability to wear a bra like normal, and peace of mind that their cardiologist gets the data they need for health decisions.
The Heartsense ECG device is a noninvasive system that tracks 3-point ECG data, pulse oximetry, and core body temperature. Developed by the collaboration of clinical academics in cardiology and cardiovascular regeneration, it ultimately lifts the burden from cardiology departments and makes the standard of care more accessible and available for its patients.
The heart is one of the most crucial and hardworking organs in the body. Cambridge Heartwear worked to foster a trustworthy and intimate relationship between the Heartsense device and the user in a respectful way. It’s not worth waiting to get early warnings about heart issues. One measurement could mean the difference of saving a life.
