AliveCor Protects Your Heart


Besides your smartphone being able to do everything from track your sleep to wash your dishes, now you can add heart monitoring to the list, thanks to AliveCor, a heart monitor that attaches to your phone to detect if you have a serious heart condition.  


There are some heart conditions that don’t have any physical symptoms, such as atrial fibrillation (AFib), which is a type of abnormal cardiac rhythm, affecting 25% of our population.  Historically, the only way to know if you have it is a visit to your doctor.

AliveCor 2

AliveCor, however, can help in that endeavor, by allowing you to detect abnormal heart rhythms from your phone.  The device works by resting the device on your fingers or chest to record your electrocardiogram (ECG).  It then sends and then sends back info to your smartphone via an ultrasonic signal that’s picked up by your smartphone’s microphone. The AliveECG app will upload the info to AliveCor’s servers to provide you with a highly accurate reading for free. The info can then be sent to a doctor for further analysis.


The AliveCor sells for $199.
