NovabandTM makes diagnostic, hospital-grade 12/15 lead ECG accessible to all from medical professionals in hospital and
clinics to the patient’s in remote areas requiring no medical knowledge.


NovabandTM is a smart wearable electronic band that is worn over the chest, and monitors 12 and 15-lead electrocardiogram via embedded sensors and a miniature electrocardiogram device. Its use is versatile, and it is available as both disposable and reusable.

NovabandTM is a smart wearable electronic band that is worn over the chest, and monitors 12 and 15-lead electrocardiogram via embedded sensors and a miniature electrocardiogram device. Its use is versatile, and it is available as both disposable and reusable.
NovabandTM performs diagnostic 12 and 15-lead electrocardiogram in a manner that shortens the duration of the exam, taking it back from several minutes to a matter of seconds, all with the highest standards of care. NovabandTM fits all body sizes for both woman and man. Because the NovabandTM uses an array of electrodes with a constant distance between the electrodes, it reduces the chance of inaccuracies – limiting operator-dependent errors of electrodes misplacement on, and between, exams. NovabandTM simplifies the exam procedure so medical knowledge from the operator is not required. The operator simply need to place NovabandTM on the patient chest and record, while the real-time electrocardiogram is streamed to nearby or remote devices, such as PC, a mobile phone or tablet.

Management

NovabandTM transmits in real-time the data from the patient to a remote device, where the medical professional can view and analyze the electrocardiogram waveforms. The remote device can fully operate NovabandTM including monitoring and recording the exam, playing a recorded exam, setting the exam duration, analyzing the exam and more. The NovabandTM application enables video conferencing between the patient at home and their physician of choice, as well as performing consultations between physicians. NovabandTM also alerts the physician if a patient falls and can transmit their location to a remote device, enabling dispatching of emergency medical crew if necessary. Wireless upgrading ensures automatic installation of new versions, making it easy for everyone, including users without any technical knowledge.

Technology

NovabandTM implements Acurtex core patent-pending technology, which enables the increase of skin conductivity by means of electrically inducing physiological Sudomotor reaction. This process makes the reliable acquisition of high quality physiological signals possible. It is a breakthrough in technology, which allows medicine to overcome the major obstacle – very low skin conduction – that prevented, until now, the use of gel-devoid electrodes for reliable health monitoring.

Modularity of use

NovabandTM modular design enables high flexibility in use. In its full featured configuration, it provides a standalone end-to end solution. Used as an apparatus, it interfaces with most of the exiting ECG devices, offering the benefit of seamless integration to existing systems. In another embodiment, the monitoring device, coupled with an ECG cable, can be used as a standard ECG device acquiring the electrocardiographic signals from the ECG cable with gel electrodes.

Advantages

NovabandTM supersedes all current methodologies of diagnostic electrocardiogram in three important areas: accuracy, ease of use and cost. Its high accuracy emanates from the embodiment of the best-in- class electrocardiogram device; combined with a reduction of inter and intra operator-dependent placement accuracies. Its ease of use enables the layperson, with no medical knowledge, to perform reliable monitoring at home. A drastic shortening of the exam, and operator time, coupled with elimination of the use of disposable electrodes in the reusable use results in a significant reduction of exam cost. This works out equivalent to an annual saving from one product of $9000 for reusable, and $12,000 for disposable usage, when compared with current devices.

Methods of use

NovabandTM offers versatile methods of use allowing the operator the flexibility of tailoring specific settings. A disposable use sees an electrode patch attached to the band prior to each exam, lowering the risk of infection transfer between patients. The reusable use utilizes Novaband’s embedded array of electrodes and has the advantage of significantly lowering the exam cost. This use requires disinfection between each patient.
