CES 2011: Alivecor to show ECG Device for iPhone
 
 

There are all sorts of gadgets that surface at CES each year and one of the growing categories are gadgets that are focused on health care. The latest such health gadget to be shown off at the show next week is called iPhonECG and is from Alivecore.

The device is a case for the iPhone that you put onto your chest and the case can read the electrical impulses in the heart to determine if there is a problem. The iPhone appears to run an app that will read the ECG and turn it into a visual line representation that can be read by a medical pro.

The gadget will sell for about $100 each and will be very useful to anyone with a heart condition. I am sure this won’t be the only medical gadget seen at the show.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
