A Hungarian team has developed a device that they hope will let people assess chance of stroke or sudden cardiac arrest. The WIWE device features a 1-lead ECG, blood oxygen saturation sensor, and an activity monitor that are used to collect data on a person. These are then analyzed by a companion app that provides a score that may warn a person to take action to improve their condition.
We reviewed a similar device recently, the MOCAheart, and found that while the technology is interesting and impressive, the reality is that people who can afford to buy one would already know if they’re in poor cardiovascular health. Perhaps the WIWE will offer more useful analytics and applications.
Here’s a promo video for the WIWE Indiegogo fundraiser:
