Outline of available mobile ECG technology
AliveCor (Kardia Mobile)
Alivecor is a pocket-sized ECG recorder and a mobile device application for analysis and communication of the results. Two fingers from each hand are placed on the heart monitor to record an ECG which is transmitted wirelessly to the Alivecor ECG App. ECGs can be stored and emailed to GP.

The aim of the device is to detect paroxysmal AF. The device can be used by people with intermittent palpitations to help determine the cause of symptoms. It can be used in any setting in place of existing portable ECG recorders.
