The EKG Glove has gained accelerated attention after a meeting with Relyant CMO and retired Army General Steven Anderson who stated, “It’s simple, this technology will save lives.” The company has been making their rounds throughout K-Street while evaluating multiple federal contractor teaming arrangements for optimal and expedited distribution to the VA and DoD. This cost effective and disposable technology takes only seconds to apply can be plugged into a mobile device or laptop to monitor the condition of the patient and due to its light weight and size, the EKG Glove is the most mobile ECG technology in the world today.
“I had the misfortune of being on a boat and witnessing a friend have a heart attack and three weeks later he was found dead,” explained Gopinathan. “This left a lasting impression on my mind and I was determined to create a ‘gadget’ that could record an ECG regardless of your location. People with heart conditions need to be able to monitor their heart rate without the cumbersome cords and heavy equipment.” A decade later the EKG Glove became a reality and is rapidly gaining the support and attention of the medical technology community.
IneedMD’s goal is to provide the EKG Glove to the military, hospitals and retirement communities as a convenient and lightweight alternative to the traditional ECG machine.
