Telehealth solutions and remote medical monitoring is quickly gaining adoption worldwide. Now, healthcare providers can offer better support and care to patients with fewer resources and lower costs. Technological advancements in the telecommunications and IT sectors promise significant benefits to both healthcare providers and patients.

Our cloud-based telehealth solutions aim to help healthcare providers deliver enhanced and extended care to patients with chronic diseases. Our leading product, the E100, is a single-lead ECG heart monitor that targets patients with arrhythmia. Patients can use this device to record their own ECGs and upload the data to REKA Health’s secure cloud platform for review by their healthcare providers.

Conventional remote heart monitoring devices such as Holter or event monitors involve affixing electrodes to the patient’s body and are impractical for long-term use. The E100 quickly and accurately captures an ECG reading by placing one’s thumbs on the device. This facilitates long-term and ad-hoc monitoring, and patients are able to administer self-care measures by taking their own ECG readings at any time or location. The simple “plug and play” approach of our devices eliminates the need for manual data entry, thus minimizing the risk of error or inaccuracies in the data.

With timely monitoring and updates, physicians are well-informed about their patients' conditions and are empowered to produce better care outcomes. This helps in the early detection of any abnormalities or complications, thereby helping physicians to address potential problems without delay and reduce the risks born by patients.

Our devices are linked to a cloud-based platform that allows physicians to conveniently access their patients’ records regardless of time or location, as long as there is Internet connectivity. Physicians and patients can access the health records for free and charges are only incurred when using advanced features such as report generation.

E100 Potential Uses
The E100 cardiac monitor is designed for patients who are suffering from early stage arrhythmia or mild heart failure (NYHA Class I, II and II+) and is intended for home and self use outside of hospitals.

The device captures ECG graphs and records analytical values of heart rate, PR, QRS, QTc and heart rate for the updating of the patient’s personal health record maintained on REKA Health’s cloud-based platform. This is suitable for patients who require cardiac monitoring for the detection of disturbances in cardiac rhythm and conduction.

E100 Potential Uses include:

  • Detection of infrequent symptomatic arrhythmia
    Patients who sporadically suffer from cardiac arrhythmia, with symptoms such as chest discomfort or pressure, chest pain (angina), shortness of breath, fainting (syncope), light-headedness or dizziness, heart palpitations, general weakness, and fatigue during exercise.
  • Post-myocardial infarction review
    Patients who require review and monitoring following cardiovascular surgery or a myocardial infarction episode
  • Monitoring for at-risk patients
    Patients who are at risk of experiencing cardiac arrhythmia due to pre-existing conditions such as high blood pressure and sleep apnea, or patients with long QT syndrome or atrial fibrillation/flutter, which involves a high risk of stroke.
  • Cardiac rehabilitation
    Patients who need to undergo cardiac rehabilitation following coronary artery bypass graft surgery, a balloon angioplasty (PTCA), implantation of a pacemaker, or a heart transplant. Patients who have been diagnosed with stable chronic heart failure, peripheral arterial disease and claudication, or certain other forms of cardiovascular disease might also require cardiac rehabilitation.
  • Monitoring drug effects
    Patients who might suffer from side effects caused by the prescription of cardiac-related drugs or other drugs.

Warnings/ Precautions

 
  • The E100 is not intended to detect Implantable Cardiac Defibrillator (ICD) pacing or shocking signals.
  • The E100 is not intended for patients who require in-hospital monitoring.
  • If patient's signal is weak using Lead I of the E100, try using Lead II to capture the ECG data.
  • ECG records obtained using the E100 can be transferred to the patient's personal health record on REKA Health's platform only if the user account has been registered with the corresponding serial number on www.rekahealth.com.
