Hsinchu, Taiwan Aug 29th, 2018 – Maisense, an innovative startup, devotes itself to stroke prevention, today announced the telecardiology system using a portable device „Freescan“ that can measure blood pressure and record ECG simultaneously.
„For most telecardiology systems on the market, they either provide only ECG, or provide both blood pressure and ECG but retrieve them from two independent devices. The more devices there are, the less likely for patients to use all of them regularly.“ said Bach Chen, Vice President of business development, Maisense.
The purpose of Maisense“s telecardiology system is to simplify the measurement procedure for patients. Through the combination of three elements: the Freescan device, the myFreescan App, and the Patient Care web platform, patients can measure blood pressure and ECG with a single device. In addition, doctors are able to monitor patients“ health condition easily through the web-based Patient Care System. Maisense Freescan in combination with the myFreescan App delivers a combined all-in-1 solution utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) for early atrial fibrillation detection (AFib), arrhythmia (bradycardia and tachycardia) detection, pulse wave velocity, and blood pressure monitoring in a single device.
According to World Health Organization (WHO)“s report in May 2018, stroke incidents are globally the second most common cause of death after ischaemic heart disease. Of the 56.9 million deaths worldwide in 2016, almost 6 million died persons died of strokes, this is about 10% of all the accounted deaths. However, up to 80% of strokes may be preventable by monitoring the major risk factors: arterial stiffness, atrial fibrillation (AFib), and hypertension.
The adoption of Maisense“s telecardiology system will enable every user of the solution to assess their risk level of strokes anytime. Therefore then they can take preventive actions to minimize the risk.
Maisense held a session to elaborate telecardiology system at the ESC (European Society of Cardiology) congress in Munich on August 28th.
„I believe that solid researches lead to excellent innovation. Therefore, we continue to push the boundaries on digital health support, and on top of that, we value each opportunity to present our system at conferences or academia“, said Benjamin Chiu, CEO, Maisense.
