Monitor your heart and calls
SUFFERING from dizziness, breathlessness, nausea, palpitations or chest pain? You may have reason to worry because these are signs of potential heart problems.
But instead of just worrying, monitor your heart with EPI Life — said to be the world’s first Electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring device that incorporates ECG capabilities on a mobile phone.
Developed by e-health start-up Heartonics Sdn Bhd for those aged 35 and above, and frequent travellers, EPI Life lets you detect heart problems early. The user takes an ECG using built-in sensors on the phone and sends the file to a 24-hour health concierge centre via GPRS. Within minutes, a response is sent back to the user via SMS. EPF Life users will be prompted to seek medical advice if abnormalities are detected.
Heartronics is partnering with Pantai Hospital Kuala Lumpur and Maxis for the package. The device is priced at RM2,299 and is available at KLCC, TTDI, Sunway Pyramid and The Gardens Maxis Centres in Kuala Lumpur. Maxis One Club members will enjoy a RM600 discount if they sign up by end September. Those who sign up after that will receive a RM300 discount.
Maxis will be providing customised service plans for the device, with ECG rates starting from RM13.
