California-based digital healthcare company Vivalink has announced a multi-parameter wearable electrocardiogram (ECG) patch with continuous 14-day live stream capabilities.

Extended-duration remote ECG monitoring can be performed with a single application of the patch, reducing clinician and patient burden. In addition, the real-time streaming capabilities let clinicians remotely view a patient’s live ECG anywhere, anytime.

Continuous or live monitoring of ECG may be indicated for post-op care after cardiac catheterisation, cardiac surgery, ablation and cryptogenic stroke. For example, a 14-day mobile cardiac telemetry session can be performed with a single application of the patch. And at any time, a cardiologist can view the patient’s ECG live as though the patient is in the clinic, to adjudicate events such as arrhythmias and to confirm the patient’s current status.

“Advancements in digital healthcare technologies are enabling a new class of applications such as acute patient monitoring and virtual hospitals,” said Jiang Li, CEO of Vivalink. “The new 14-day ECG patch is just another example of Vivalink’s innovation in the world of digital healthcare.”

In addition to parameters such as HRV, respiratory rate and skin temperature, other features of the patch include the ability to measure the number of steps taken, the intensity of movement and to detect position.

The adhesive used is water resistant and allows for continuous wear.

Together with Vivalink’s other medical wearable sensors, the monitoring of human vitals – such as ECG, heart rate, respiratory rate, temperature, SpO2 and blood pressure – can be performed remotely, continuously and in real time.

Vivalink provides digital healthcare for virtual patient care and decentralised clinical trials. It leverages physiology-optimised medical wearable sensors and software to enable a deeper and more clinical understanding between provider and patient.
