Heart related diseases are one of the most frequent causes of unexpected health problems. The electrocardiogram (ECG), invented 100 years ago, helps to find causes for cardiac symptoms. ECG-Excellence now introduces a new technology to use ECG wave patterns analysis for early detection of life threatening diseases. ECG-Excellence converts the standard 12 lead ECG recording devices to instruments for next level ECG diagnostics, preventive screening and disease progression monitoring.
Today ECG diagnostics is mainly based on heart rhythm analysis. Analysing the wave patterns requires skills, experience and accuracy. The key to the improvement of wave pattern analysis is reducing the impact of variability in electrode placement. A small difference in an electrode location on the human torso (50% male and 80% female electrodes are not placed on the required location) results in a significant change in recorded wave patterns. Cardiologists, lacking data on the electrode position, alas cannot evaluate the subtle pattern abnormalities in the ECG morphology.
Result: Late diagnosis and/or late detection of disease only after symptoms are felt by the patient.
corrects the data for the electrode locations. ECG-Excellence
combines standard ECG data with 3D imaging and novel ECG-Excellence
algorithms. First pilot tests have been executed by the ECG-Excellence
team and show early identification of cardiac problems is possible. Achieved accuracy and consistency of the ECG-Excellence
hard- and software enables the medical professional to compare a person’s ECG through time. And detect subtle changes between the recordings. Peter van Dam, co-founder of ECG-Excellence
: “it’s our ambition and passion to save lives through enhanced ECG technology!”. ECG-Excellence
- The early detection of diseases such as Brugada, Arrhythmogenic Cardiomyopathy, Atrial Fibrillation , atherosclerosis (especially in female hearts) or cardiac diseases within the population of diabetes patients. Early detection often saves lives and health care costs;
- The monitoring of the impact of cardiac surgery, the impact of taking medication/drugs/foods supplements and the impact of intense sports activities. And thus avoids unexpected strokes or death.
