Projects ECG (Electrocardiogram) Monitoring

Business Direction

Digital ECG Monitoring
Conventional analog methods cannot track changes in individual ECG data, and it is also difficult to compare and analyze current and past data.

-> In traditional ways, it is often too late to visit a hospital because the patient feels abnormal, failing to diagnose whether a healthy person is approaching heart disease.

Assumes a system combined with mobile devices and cloud services

If you can observe and analyze changes in ECG data regularly (or intermittently) over a relatively long period of time, it is more likely to prevent worsening of heart disease.

-> It is also possible to develop new diagnostic methods through the use of big data.

   To realize this, it is necessary to build an ECG monitoring system composed of ECG measuring devices, mobile devices, and cloud services.

- ECG Monitoring System Concept
-> ECG data sent to the cloud continuously or intermittently for a long time performs statistical processing such as P wave time, PR, QRS, QT, QTc interval, and a warning is sent to the specialist to be diagnosed if meaningful changes are detected.

Connect with Gloval Platform Business

  • The convergence of ICT and medical technologies is expected to bring about revolutionary changes in view of the enormous scale of network effects that follow.

  • Global companies such as Google, Amazon and Apple are competing in healthcare platform business, while Samsung Group in Korea is also seeking to do platform business through SAMI and Simband, etc.

    These companies are choosing different platform businesses depending on whether they emphasize user convenience aspects or focus on platform roles for device and app developers, and which point they choose between fitness and full-fledged health care behavior.

  • The healthcare platform business is still in the preparatory stage due to institutional regulations on medical practices, lack of diagnostic algorithms and sensor technology.  The ECG Monitoring System presented above can be a powerful tool for driving the platform business.

Select Lead I as the measurement location for ECG Monitoring.

ECG measuring devices for monitoring should be simple and easy to use. It should also be provided at an affordable price and need to minimize the measurement position.

-> Without sufficient user convenience, it is difficult to achieve the task of observing and analyzing changes in ECG data regularly (or intermittently) over a long period of time.

-> Lead II is the most representative of 12 ECG channel, but it is inconvenient to measure it with a portable ECG device. It is important to ensure convenience.

From this point of view, select Lead I as the measurement location for ECG Monitoring.

- Lead I : RA(Right Arm) and LA(Left Arm)

   Effectiveness Issues of Lead I Data
The specialist performs ECG diagnosis using 12 Lead Data. Questions may arise about whether analysis using only Lead I data is sufficient.

-> As long as monitoring is concerned, we have verified that Lead 1 is of sufficient utility.
