QardioCore is the newest wearable heart monitor that can feed real & accurate medical data to health managers and may be used as a complementary tool in alternative medicine. The FDA-approved heart monitor records continuous heart rate, heart rate variability, skin temperature, respiratory rate and ECG. These data can be transmitted to doctors and to the user’s device to keep track of the heart’s health. When used in complementary and alternative medicine, cardiovascular disease prevention and management is widely improved.
An Intelligent ECG Monitor
The proliferation of implantable medical devices signifies that demand for equipment to treat heart conditions continues to grow. Pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillator or Left Ventricle Assist Device are few of the examples of medical devices that are used in the management of a heart condition.
They are made from different materials such as platinum or titanium wires. The superior physical and mechanical properties of titanium, for example, make it an excellent material for cardiac pacemakers. Titanium is elastic, durable and resistant to corrosion making it an ideal component for implantable medical devices.
Earlier this year, Qardio Inc. launched its revolutionary chest monitor strap. The release of the QardioCore, however, paves the way for preventive heart care that will minimize the probability of getting diseases and debilitating medical conditions. If used together with alternative medicine, it can?improve health management immensely?that will reduce overall costs and burden to people & society. PwC predicts that medical costs will rise to 6.5% in 2018 compared to 6% this year. As defined, alternative medicine is anything that is outside of the scope of conventional medicine. This includes massage, Ayurvedic treatments, homeopathy, and acupuncture, among others.
Lifestyle and Diets
Perhaps, the most effective complement to the QardioCore heart strap is the improvement or change in lifestyle and diets. Information fed from the monitor will enable users to look at their vitals in both the short and long-term. It allows them to make changes to their lifestyles and see what they are doing wrong. Diets can be changed or modified to suit the age and existing pre-conditions. Incorporating exercise and physical movement will improve cardiovascular functioning contributing to an overall health and well-being.
For those who have the predisposition to a heart condition, doctors and medical professionals can see whether treatments are working or not. Alternative therapies may be considered to ensure that the patient gets the best possible treatment. For example, learning breathing exercises through yoga is helpful for patients who have a heart disease.
In short, alternative medicine and modern technology can work hand in hand in the promotion of a healthier individual. By using data from the heart strap or monitor, an individual can use the information to change lifestyles and habits or seek complementary therapy to improve health. Medical professionals are also able to use the statistics to inform patients of their heart?s health, prescribe recommendations and see where alternative medicine can help.
