Dozee coming up with AI-powered ECG patch for remote cardiac monitoring
Indian medical device maker Dozee is introducing a new ECG patch device to its portfolio of remote monitoring solutions.
According to a press release, the ECG patch monitors the heart’s electrical activity continuously over multiple days. It will help detect arrhythmias and other early signs of cardiac deterioration, assisting clinicians in providing timely medical interventions.
This device can also feed live and continuous ECG data via the cloud and provide alerts to doctors.
“We are excited to enter the cardiac monitoring segment in India with our ECG patch, which is an addition to our vitals monitoring portfolio. This technology can be especially pivotal in India, as cardiovascular disease has become the leading cause of morbidity and mortality over the last three decades,” said Dozee CEO and co-founder Mudit Dandwate.
India reports up to 1.8 million new cardiac cases each year, becoming a fast-growing disease burden in the country.
Philips launches AR surgical navigation tool ClarifEye in Japan
An augmented reality surgical navigation solution by Royal Philips has come to Japan.
Called ClarifEye, the solution combines 2D and 3D visualizations at low x-ray doses with 3D AR navigation into one system.
It enables surgeons to define and navigate critical trajectories for precise device placement while avoiding damage to neurological and vascular structures close to the patient’s spine.
Philips reported its first use case in Japan in a hybrid OR at the International University of Health and Welfare, Mita Hospital.
“The addition of a new navigation system helps to create an even safer surgical environment. Compared to existing navigation systems, ClarifEye has no reference frame-related errors, and it’s wonderful that it achieves real-time imaging with pedicle segmentation,” Dr Ken Ishi of the hospital’s Department of Orthopedic Surgery commented.
