HealthWatch is making its U.S. launch at the HIMSS16 annual conference and exhibition, Las Vegas, NV. Represents a Breakthrough in Comfortable Healthwear for Telemonitoring Anytime and Anywhere

HealthWatch Ltd. announced the launching of its products in the US market and the new US based office located in Greensboro, NC

Wearable textile medical device company, HealthWatch Ltd., will be displaying its revolutionary ECG-sensing textile garments and the remote monitor system at the HIMSS16 annual conference and exhibition – the largest health IT event of the year.

HealthWatch announces hWear™ - the novel, digital, heart-sensing garment, that incorporates interwoven textile electrodes, capable of detecting 3-to-15 lead ECG signals. The ECG tracings are of hospital-quality, both at rest and during routine daily activities, thus enabling continuous ECG telemonitoring via smartphone applications, anytime and anywhere, without routine lifestyle restrictions. The garments and smart apps will be demonstrated in live action at the HealthWatch booth (671) at the HIMSS16 Annual conference and exhibition in Las Vegas, NV (Feb 29 – March 4).

Designed by HealthWatch's textile experts, hWear™ measures the highest quality vital signs without any skin preparation and individual electrode positioning, making ECG easy to use for both men and women. The CE- and FDA-registered garments are machine washable and interface directly with most existing cardiac and telemetry systems.

The MasterCaution Device (MCD) is a miniature device that contains an embedded processor for data acquisition, storage, and processing of the ECG signal. In addition, the MCD includes an accelerometer, infra-red sensor, and Bluetooth capability, providing ancillary data regarding posture and motion activity, respiration, and skin temperature. The MCD is capable of transmitting the ECG and ancillary data in near real-time review to a clinic, hospital, or remote medical service center. The MCD is a FDA cleared class II medical device.

"The eHealth, TeleHealth, mHealth, and Tele-cardiology industries can now deploy intensive-care quality telemonitoring, without affecting the lifestyle of their users ranging from patients within a hospital environment, to homecare settings, to heart attack survivors, to the active elderly seeking better coverage of their health, or to users wishing to have direct contact with their expert personal physician from anywhere,” said Uri Amir, CEO HealthWatch Ltd.
