The group produced a miniature device for recording the electrocardiogram SAVVY ECG, which enables for heart rate to be recorded unobtrusively during daily activities over several days, thus enabling the detection and investigation of heart rhythm disturbances over long periods, which had previously not been possible. An innovative ECG meter has been launched in the global market in the form of a medically proven product. Simple and safe handling, as well as affordable price also allow for personal use at home, which is a novelty on the global scale. Having been introduced into the range of widespread medical applications, the system will significantly contribute to more efficient and accessible healthcare for users.
Overall, the achievement is an exceptional example of a successful knowledge chain that has been realized in production and has proven that the field of biomedicine offers many opportunities for the implementation of advanced medical devices and services.
