We place an emphasis on native communities, where accessibility to health is very little or they do not have it. Where the access time to health care is 42 to 49 minutes walking. Health entities have been overwhelmed and evidencing the technological limitations. There is no electrocardiogram detection and transmission system to monitor patients at high cardiovascular risk in rural areas in real time.
Our solution is a portable, easy-to-repair and low-priced ECG device, because Peru has a difficult geography, which makes it difficult for both personnel and medical equipment to access different areas of the country. With this device, we will be able to bring ECG technology to areas that are difficult to access.
Cardiovascular diseases are the main cause of death in the world, causing the loss of 17.9 million lives each year.
