High Resolution ECG Machine and Telemedicine Systems

The Product and Novelty
  • The ECG machines available in the market are low in resolution and are not telemedicine enabled
  • They lack Artificial Intelligence for self diagnostic
  • They are not designed to be a part of workflow in a comprehensive Cardiac Care system
  • A smart ECG machine based intelligent Diagnostic (i-Diagnostic) system that integrates into the work flow of a national level Cardiac Care System (Tele-cardiac System) is developed
  • The system is developed with a group of top cardiologists of Armed Forces Institute of Cardiology
  • The system is placed in AFIC for testing, evolution and national level deployment



System Level Design

Smart ECG Machine




  • High resolution (number of bits per samples and no of samples in a second)
  • Artificial intelligence based self Diagnostic and report generation
  • Integration of CARE proprietary cognitive communication solution that provides connectivity using multiple technologies like GSM, HF, VSAT, Ethernet, dialup, WLL etc
  • Connectivity with National Cardiac grid and tele-cardiac system
  • Portable and battery operated for use in remote places, ambulances and disaster areas

Technical Specifications

This ECG machine has overall two modes i.e. Stand Alone and the Advance mode. The stand alone is the isolated machine without any connection to any computer system while the advance mode is actually the PC terminal of high resolution ECG machine.

Independent Mode

Independent/Standalone Mode is actually a basic version of the ECG Machine. In this mode, the machine can be used without the advanced mode software and any other external device. The Sampling frequency in this mode is limited to 1kHz. The standalone mode allows the user to take the hard copy print-outs with the built-in thermal printer. In this mode, the printing format is limited to 3x4+1 format. The mode also allows the user to select different filtering options and paper gain options.
