The advent of technology has made it possible to have sensitive medical-grade wearables that detect infrequent abnormal heart rhythms (cardiac arrhythmias) in patients of all ages.The consulting physician may recommend such a system when symptoms are sporadic – less than daily.Current cardiac event monitors may miss the actual event, as by the time the monitor is worn, the event may have already passed. In addition, existing cardiac event monitor, which are usually hand-held, can only record a ECG rhythm when the device is held by both hands, which means these are usually limited to only a few minutes of recording.The Spyder Personal is a unique wearable that will change how infrequent arrhythmias are detected. It is a small leadless sensor that sends continuous data to a paired Android phone, and records a 5-min ECG strip when activated by the user.Upon patient trigger, the recorded strip is unique in that it displays the ECG rhythm 2.5 minutes prior to the activation and another 2.5 minutes after activation. This therefore will record any symptom or ECG abnormality prior to the user activating the recording. The user can also input type of symptom directly on the phone, therefore improving the correlation between User symptoms and actual ECG abnormalities.
Spyder Personal ECG Event Monitor is now released for online purchase to select countries. The Spyder Monitor is capable of recording up to 5 minutes of ECG data upon patient trigger. This key data is then archived in a secured and private cloud exclusive to the Spyder Personal user. The resulting data can then be extracted as a PDF to be reviewed by the user’s personal doctor or user may also opt for our analysis report service by our team of doctors and medical professionals.With the extended time recorded upon patient-trigger, the Spyder Personal is therefore more likely to pick up very infrequent arrhythmias, such as single extra-beats, or runs of irregular rhythm ( such as atrial fibrillation, a common arrhythmia that can potentially cause stroke ) as compared to traditional event monitors, and feed-back the information to you for immediate attention. The 5-minute strip provided is also more likely to accurately correlate and time your symptoms with any ECG abnormality.
