HCG-801 / Portable ECG Monitor


universal design award 2008

universal design award 2008

HCG-801 is a portable electrocardiograph that enables you to record a precordial electrocardiogram (ECG) anywhere and anytime chest pain or palpitation occurs. It provides you 30 second recordings and helps your doctor make a correct diagnosis of heart disease.
Its well-considered shape leads you to take the most appropriate posture. All you have to do is to push the accessible start button. The guidance screens also help you obtain better recording.
Its ergonomic design of the pick-up sensor system provides sufficiently clear signals for further evaluation. The recorded results are displayed on the high resolution screen with backlight.
