This new universal design includes the proprietary AliveCor ultrasound
technology that enables a clinical-quality ECG recording of the heart’s
activity, while minimizing battery drain. The compact design is easy to
install and is transferable among various mobile devices. Just like the
current Heart Monitor, it is clinically accurate, simple, and powerful.
“We have today extended the benefits of our mobile ECG technology to a
new range of smartphones, significantly expanding customer access,” said
Euan Thomson, CEO and President of AliveCor. “The AliveCor Heart Monitor
is small, versatile, uses very little battery power, and can be used any
time in almost any location.”
The FDA-cleared Heart Monitor attaches directly to the back of the
mobile device or its case with the universal attachment plate. Current
Android devices supported are the Samsung Galaxy S3, S4, and HTC One.
Apple devices supported are the iPhone® 4, 4S, and 5 and – new today -
the iPod touch 5. For those that prefer the Heart Monitor as a case,
AliveCor offers cases for the Galaxy S4 and for the iPhone 4, 4S, and 5.
“From its early days, I’ve studied and published peer-reviewed research
on the AliveCor device,” said Dr. Leslie Saxon, the Chief of
Cardiovascular Medicine at the Keck School of Medicine of the University
of Southern California, and the Executive Director of the USC Center for
Body Computing, a digital health research and innovation center. “I
think it is one of the more important technologies in recent years that
enables large scale healthcare awareness and literacy.”
