m-CARDS™

Mobile Cardiac Arrhythmia Diagnostic Service: State of the Art technology to identify, monitor and diagnose cardiac arrhythmias. An external Loop Recorder ideal for correlating whether arrhythmia is the cause of bothersome symptoms such as chest pain, palpitations, dizziness, shortness of breath, and many others.

Our Technology

  • Wireless technology for diagnosis and communication
  • Higher diagnostic yield than Holter1
  • Our device works automatically, it can detect both symptomatic and asymptomatic arrhythmias (sensitive to atrial fibrillation)
  • Near real time monitoring and reporting
  • Fast diagnosis and proven efficacy (3rd part validation and published research)
  • Comprehensive “self hook up” instructions provided
1. Efficacy of diagnostic tool for detecting cardiac arrhythmias: systematic literature search E. Hoefman, P.J.E. Bindels, H.C.P.M. van Weert (Netherlands Heart J. 2010 Nov; 18 (11)
