We think of our smartphones as life savers. Suddenly that’s not an exaggeration. Kardia Mobile is wireless — about the size of a lighter — and delivers medical-grade EKGs in 30 seconds.
While it’s not a piece of tech everybody out there needs, those who do will come to see it as indispensable. Just put a finger on each of the pads and relax. 30 seconds later, you know if your heart rate is normal or if you’re experiencing atrial fibrillation (which signals an increased risk of stroke and heart failure). Results can be emailed to your doctor so both of you know how your ticker is ticking.
This is a legitimate piece of medical equipment that gives you EKG results anywhere you go. That’s a huge bit of information for such a small gadget. – $99
