A mobile nano-device to record heart beats
Scientists and students at IIT Mumbai have claimed to have developed a unique mobile nano device which can record the heart beat of a person constantly for 12 hours.
"We have developed a silicon locket at IIT. It will record ECG for 12 hours in one change of battery. The standard mobile interface will help the user send the SMS to the doctor about the latest ECG. This is going to help the patients immensely," Prof V Ramgopal Rao of IIT Mumbai said.
It is a hand held device, which will be with a patient all time and once fully charged the battery can record 12 hours of ECG, he said adding with constant ECG recording the doctors can find out where the actual problem is and can diagnose and give the prescription more precisely.
This mobile device will hit the market very soon, Rao, who was in the city to deliver a keynote address at a national conference on Applications of Nanotechnology, said.
