Handheld 12-Channel Tele-ECG Instrument
Overview

BARC has developed Handheld 12-Channel Tele-ECG, which is a portable, light weight Mobile Controlled ECG machine and capable of simultaneous acquiring all 12 channels of ECG in Real time. The machine can be connected to Mobile/PC via Bluetooth and the report is generated in the form of an image that can be sent to the expert via MMS or internet. This has provided virtual instantaneous ECG diagnostic service to a villager at his home/village thus, proving the philosophy – “Cardiac Care – Just a Click Away”. This saves crucial time, which is otherwise lost in transporting the patient to the nearest cardiac care center.

Quick View Leaflet

BARC has developed a Handheld 12-Channel Tele-ECG Instrument operated with the help of a mobile phone via Bluetooth. It records all the 12-leads of ECG simultaneously and displays the same on mobile screen. After complete recording, the report is generated in the form of an image that can be sent to the expert's mobile through Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) or any other file sharing apps. The device is ideally suited for rural health care. In city hospitals, the machine can be operated through Laptop/Desktop and report can be shared on Local Area Network (LAN). ECG report in standard graphical format can be taken on a blank A4 size paper.

This has provided virtual instantaneous ECG diagnostic service to a villager at his home/village thus, proving the philosophy – “Cardiac Care – Just a Click Away”.

 SALIENT FEATURES

  • Simultaneous acquisition of all the 12-leads

  • Low cost, portable and compact

  • Variable gain and frequency selection

  • Mobile as well as LAN connectivity

  • Acquisition, processing, storing and visualization of ECG in real time

  • Using a secure GPRS connection for transfer of ECG data to expert mobile

  • Lead fail detection


APPLICATIONS

  • The Tele-ECG system is of considerable importance for developing countries, where more than 70% of the population inhabits rural areas and has meager access to medical facilities. This large section can now be provided state-of-the-art medical care with such Tele-systems

  • This unit can also be used for personal monitoring for regular follow up

  • The unit has been upgraded for hospital use having Local Area Network

Detail Technical Brochure

The concept of Tele-ECG was introduced more than 30 years ago, through the use of telephone lines. However, this application is limited to communication between fixed locations equipped with conventional handsets. The latest trend is to develop wireless telemedicine built around satellite communication, which requires expensive equipment, dedicated links and skilled manpower. Similarly wireless Local Area Networks (LANs) and short-range Radio Frequency (RF) transceivers, as used in hospitals, can’t be utilized for rural applications. Therefore, for worldwide communication and rural health care, mobile cellular network like Global System for Mobile or better a Third Generation network is needed.
