Bittium Faros™ ECG-measuring devices’ arrhythmia detection algorithms received medical device approval in Europe
Bittium Faros ECG-measuring devices’ built-in algorithms for detection of arrhythmias have received medical device approval in Europe. The algorithms can be used to automatically identify sequences from the heart measurement data that include atrial fibrillation, tachycardia, bradycardia, and pauses in the operation of the heart. Early detection of atrial fibrillation can be used to predict the risk of stroke and to prevent its emergence with timely treatment initiation. These new medical device approved algorithms for detection of arrhythmias are available now with Faros ECG-measuring devices.
The new functions allow focusing only on the interesting events even in measurements that last for several days or weeks. In remote monitoring applications Faros devices’ arrhythmia detection algorithms help health care providers to react faster to changes in patients’ state of health. Faros technology is also used in Holtering as well as in group monitoring in cardiac rehabilitation.
Faros product family
Faros is a versatile ECG device that is used for early detection of cardiac abnormalities in everyday life. Faros is ultra-small and lightweight, which enables precise long-term full disclosure ECG measurements for long-term Holtering, cardiac event monitoring, mobile cardiac telemetry and assessing autonomic nervous system functioning.
The Faros outpatient monitoring solutions include several software options for cardiac monitoring. The built-in arrhythmia detection algorithms of the Faros device are used for event recording and mobile event monitoring that enable earlier repatriation of patients and even better ability to react to potentially emerging arrhythmias faster. The new, innovative and sophisticated Holter analysis software increases the accuracy and speeds up the analyzing work significantly.
Faros Cardiac Rehab is a solution for cardiac rehabilitation real-time monitoring for up to 16 patients simultaneously. The system offers safety and efficiency for cardiac rehabilitation by showing each patient’s heart rate, ECG and changes in ST-segment. Utilization of the latest wireless technology allows complete freedom to choose different exercises in various training environments.
