HeartBit Aims to Make Your Workout Safer with a Wearable Device Built in the IBM Cloud #Wearablewednesday

HeartBit IBM Cloud 1

Via Wearable-technologies!

While working out, not all of us achieve the same results. Our body responds differently to exercise. With the rising popularity of wearable devices, fitness enthusiasts are using them to learn more about how their body responds to activity.

Budapest-based startup HeartBit created a wearable device that monitors heart stress and uses this data to develop fitness plans customized to a user’s unique physiology and environment. The company stepped into the cloud to bring the solution to market quickly and cost effectively, reports IBM.

Most gadgets currently available in the market only monitor pulse-rate, but a device that is capable of recording electrocardiogram (ECG) data would take heart monitoring possibilities to a higher level. An ECG device could alert users about warning signs in their heart activity and offer tailored training recommendations.

HeartBit created a wearable device that monitors heart stress and uses this data to develop fitness plans customized to a user’s unique physiology and environment. HeartBit is the world’s first wireless medical grade electrocardiogram (ECG) device that can be assimilated into everyone’s daily living. HeartBit can record ECG signals while the person is resting, sleeping, exercising, and other activities. These helps increase the user’s health safety and also avoid cardiological risks.

Although it should not be used as a medical device, HeartBit can alert about serious health risks and also help detect health conditions like arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation, ischemia and other health issues.
