CardiNova, the first solution to provide medical-grade ambulatory ECG signals from an everyday garment, assisting doctors in the early detection of critical waveforms, such as AFib, with minimum intrusion for the patient. The design also helps to protect wearers’ privacy and maintain absolute discretion. It uses biocompatible, breathable, and highly elastic materials to guarantee long-term wearing comfort. Through real-time monitoring of the ECG waveforms and connection to the medical cloud, CardiNova minimizes expenditure while maximizing the effectiveness of healthcare.
