The Perfect Fit for Remote Services
An essential factor in enabling a remote service for ECG monitoring is a smart medical device that delivers diagnostic accuracy but is also easy to handle in this case for the pharmacists and comfortable to wear for the end customers, without being too visible or hindering them in their everyday life.
"The traditional ECG Holters as we know them are quite bulky and come with several electrodes and cables. They are not only more complicated to apply, but also uncomfortable to wear", explains Emilio Attolini. "From end-user feedback, we learned that patients do not like for their employers, colleagues, or friends to see that they are wearing a long-term ECG device. It might imply that they are seriously ill while they only want to have a health-check based on earlier heart arrhythmia."
Bittium Faros™ ECG sensor measures ECG without the need for ECG cables. The FastFix patch electrode is easy to apply and, when necessary, quick to replace on the chest. One patch can be used for 3 to 7 days.
Bittium Faros™ ECG sensor has quickly become one of ActiveAction's most successful and most requested devices.
“We researched and found Bittium Faros™ ECG sensor, which fits our customers´ needs perfectly. It is small, lightweight, but most of all, very easy to install and use. It was a real game-changer for our service,´ declares Attolini and continues, “Once the pharmacy helps it on, you can forget about it and wear it for up to seven days without changing the electrode patch. Having a shower or doing sport is no problem because it´s waterproof.´
