Siberian scientists developed a device for monitoring of heart and circulatory system
«A sensor weighing less than one hundred grams is mounted in the proximity to the heart by standard single use electrodes, all the information it collects is transmitted to a smartphone or a tablet via Bluetooth. Unlike cardiac sensors that are widely used these days, which transmit only ECG data, our development makes it possible to monitor the condition of the conduction and muscle system of the heart, and the circulatory system of the whole body, to check, for example, how blood circulates in the brain, hands, and feet. Additionally, we can assess how bronchial tubes and lungs function in general,» Aldonin explained.
The monitor by the SFU scientists analyses ECG data, phonocardiograms, functioning of blood vessels and other biosystems of the organism thanks to special algorithms based on the theory of self-organisation (or synergetics).
