Portable EKG or ECG (electrocardiography) has been recognized as an important innovation in the medical industry which can transform the status quo of medical care. This portable device can significantly help in the early detection of cardiovascular diseases, such as, arrhythmias, cardiomyopathy, and heart failure to name a few.
Portable ECG devices use touch sensation of thumb, fingers, palm, or wrist to identify electric signals. Conventional ECG machines, on the other hand, typically use electrodes or wires to transfer electric signals from the chest wall to the sensing apparatus. Commercially available devices have diverse functionalities and internal systems in each of them.
Advantages of Portable ECG devices
Common personal ECG devices are lightweight and small in size, making them very handy if you need to regularly check your heart's electrical activity and rhythm. The advent of technology also made it possible for these portable medical devices to read and transmit data instantaneously to the user's smartphone or computer. Unlike traditional ECG machines, the portable varieties are simple to operate and only needs minimal maintenance. Some portable ECG monitors even features the ability to display data on their own screens.
