KardiaMobile Card: Instant Feedback on Heart Health Anytime, Anywhere
KardiaMobile Card pairs with a smartphone using Bluetooth technology to detect six of the most common arrhythmias, more than any other personal ECG on the market. KardiaMobile Card users also have access to cardiologist analyses of ECGs, monthly heart health reports, and automatic sharing of ECG recordings. The device’s algorithm is based on AliveCor’s AI-enabled Kardia technology, which has been evaluated by more than 170 peer-reviewed studies. Designed to resist weather, water, and wear and tear, KardiaMobile Card is AliveCor’s most portable and durable ECG available, allowing users to take an ECG recording anytime, anywhere.
Why It Matters
KardiaMobile Card comes at a critical moment when both heart arrhythmias and hypertension, a risk factor for atrial fibrillation and other arrhythmias, are becoming more common. These cardiac conditions have massive economic impacts. Hypertension costs the U.S. healthcare system an estimated $316 billion annually.3 Further, it is estimated that 80% of all cardiovascular disease is preventable, which highlights the importance of putting real-time data within reach of patients.
“After disrupting traditional ECG monitoring with our game-changing Kardia platform, we have now achieved the unprecedented milestone of creating the first-ever credit-card-sized personal ECG,” said Priya Abani, CEO of AliveCor. “KardiaMobile Card delivers the most sophisticated AI in the most convenient form factor ever, putting the power of real-time ECG analysis directly in patients’ wallets and furthering our vision of becoming the 24/7 virtual cardiologist for patients when they’re not in front of their physician.”
KardiaMobile Card with KardiaCare is available for purchase at kardia.com for just $149. KardiaMobile Card comes with 1-year access to KardiaCare, the heart health service that offers more than 130,000 members a suite of advanced features to help them better manage and understand their heart health. KardiaCare includes ECG evaluations by board-certified cardiologists, monthly reports that summarize ECG and blood pressure data, automatic sharing of ECG recordings with caregivers, and the ability to detect a broader range of heart conditions.
