Coala Heart Monitor – A New Device for Detecting Cardiovascular Disease

coala-2

Coala Life has created a tiny medical device which can be used by consumers at home for detecting heart disease. The device named Coala does a quick heart scan (ECG) by being placed on the chest or thumb and wireless uploads the data to the cloud via cell phone for processing. It’s nice to see the mobile health market rapidly expanding while simultaneously empowering consumers to take a roll in their health monitoring.

We believe in a world where mankind is digitized,
connected and screened for early detection and
disease prevention.

Coala Life is a Swedish medical technology and life science company focusing on focusing on heart diagnostics and mobile health. The company has developed the Coala Heart Monitor, a patented and commercial solution for remote monitoring and self-screening of heart sounds and ECG. We make it possible for everyone to monitor their heart.

Cardiovascular diseases are one of the leading causes of death around the world. A key contributor is late diagnosis. Coala Life was founded in 2004 by physicians and Swedish entrepreneurs to change that. Now the solution is here that replaces an analogue device from the 18th century, the stethoscope, with a digital solution that records both heart sounds, ECG, and heart rate. A unique solution that listens, measures and analyses heart data, which allows many heart diseases to be detected and treated early, including atrial fibrillation, which increases the risk of stroke significantly. A series of patents and unique technology is the base this unique Swedish system. Coala makes it possible for everyone to screen and monitor their heart, in close contact with physicians and cardiologists.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
