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.
