iPhonECG turns iPhones into an Electrocardiograph

by Range

Holy crap, I guess I knew that smartphones were ubiquitous, but it looks like now, there will be a case sold that will transform any iPhone into an ECG or EKG (electrocardiograph).

Developed by Alivecor along with Oregon Scientific, the iPhonECG works thanks to a pair of electrodes. The electrodes communicate the info to an iPhone. These readings can be done wirelessly, meaning that you can monitor your heart rate thanks to the iPhone pressed against your heart. The software can store a complete history of heart rates and beats and, if you’ve got heart problems, the iPhone could someday be programmed to send alerts to your physician in case of emergency.


Incredibly, the units are expected to sell for less than $100 a piece. When you think about how much a traditional ECG machine costs, it’s pretty amazing.
