At BGR India’s IOT India 2020 event, Noida-based Agatsa Software led by founder Rahul Rastogi offered a sneak-peek at portable, credit-card size ECG monitor called Sanket. He also shed some light on application of the ECG monitor for end users and overall impact on the health sector. This device wirelessly connects with smartphones using Bluetooth, and it can remotely monitor the heart’s condition. He also detailed the future plans including new smart devices and solutions.
It works with a specially developed app, called Sanket that is available for Android and iOS smartphone. Users have to place their fingers or thumbs on the device to record the ECG data. It records ECG graphs and displays it on smartphones using this app. The ECG reports generated by the device can be shared instantly with the doctors via e-mail, WhatsApp, Google+ and Bluetooth among others.
One of the talking points about Agatsa’s Sanket is that it doesn’t require any professional help for measuring the ECG. It also cuts down on the travel expenses and time required of going to diagnostic centers.
Sanket can be used for recording and sharing ECG if and when symptoms like chest pain, shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat and palpitations occur. One can also use Sanket to track heart status post a rigorous exercise, stress and lack of enough sleep, thus helping to monitor the health in a better way. That’s not all; if you have your near and dear ones living remotely, Sanket can be used to track their heart status, without you being actually present there.
It can be ordered for $340, approximately Rs 22,300.
