HelpWear is currently developing HeartWatch, a 24/7 wearable heart monitoring system with an embedded emergency contact system for furthered prevention and better treatment of heart-related illness. Currently, the HeartWatch device operates by fixating the core device on the left Bicep, in the under bicep and frontal bicep location. The core benefit of this is that the location yield signal similar to clinical ECG data, but less of a hindrance compared to current clinical-grade ECG devices. This research will address two issues with the current design by increasing the acquired signal from use of an array of sensors and a hardware redesign.
