Curvus, a subsidiary of WPR Medical out of Arendal, Norway, has received 510(K) clearance for its wireless Curvus Arrhythmia Monitoring Device (C-AD), a continuous ECG monitoring system that can be worn 24/7, including during showering. The system can send immediate notifications to clinicians when arrhythmias are detected.
From the press release:
The C-AD is a highly differentiated wireless cardiac arrhythmia monitor, which, with its patent-secured design, is able to capture continuous, real-time ECG readings over the broadest spectrum of patient activity with minimal noise artifacts.
The C-AD is a fully-integrated, wireless cardiac monitoring system. Using patented shielding and antenna technology, the device can reliably transmit data from a single-lead sensor with two electrodes affixed to the patient’s body to a mobile recorder using the 2.4 GHz frequency. This truly wireless solution facilitates unencumbered cardiac monitoring of patients during the activities of daily living. Because of its inconspicuous nature, the Curvus wireless solution also eliminates the stigma associated with wearing a Holter monitor. The Curvus software suite enhances and expedites analysis of the ECG data with a data analysis package that incorporates clinically established arrhythmia parameters.
