CNET Asia reports that Ephone International‘s EPI Life is the first cellphone with integrated ECG functionality. Unlike other portable ECG devices, the EPI life does not send data back to your doctor directly, but rather to Ephone’s servers, which are monitored around the clock by a team of cardiologists. Should the doctors notice any abnormalities in the ECG, they can have emergency services sent to your location or get you priority admission into partner hospitals.
