PARIS – IMEC, Holst Center and CardioNet Inc. said they have joined forces to develop cardiac monitoring products integrating ultra-low power ICs.
The partners said this collaboration aims to further advance the use of remote technology to improve the quality of patient care.
The 18-month agreement will combine CardioNet’s proprietary algorithms and back-end infrastructure with IMEC’s expertise in ultra-low power ECG readout ASIC. The project will also leverage Denmark-based Delta's development of the world's smallest ECG electrode patch.
CardioNet is focused on helping physicians diagnose and treat patients with arrhythmias. Ten years ago, the company developed an integrated technology, dubbed Mobile Cardiac Outpatient Telemetry, which is claimed to enable heartbeat-by-heartbeat, ECG monitoring, analysis and response at home or away, 24/7/365.
