Finland: Mobile device for detecting arrhythmia soon available to consumers

Digital health start-up VitalSignum is on track to launch Beat2Phone, a small mobile device that detects arrhythmia by measuring the patient’s ECG, with the first production batch due to be on the market early next month. The device has been tested over three years with good results, on heart disease patients at the University Hospital of Turku and the Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa. “Arrhythmia tends to remain undiagnosed,” said Timo Varpula CTO of VitalSignum, who developed the technology while at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. The new device can easily be concealed under clothes and sends data on arrhythmia directly to a mobile phone. VitalSignum says the number of potential users will grow as the population ages. About 5 per cent of the population suffers from cardiac arrhythmia, which is detected in around 12 per cent of people over the age of 60.
