We’re excited to announce our seventh incredible speaker for the Mobile Midwest conference: Dr. David Albert, co-founder & Chief Scientific Officer of AliveCor.

With the aim of allowing “everyone to have their health at their fingertips”, he invented a mobile electrocardiogram (EKG) monitor that’s been FDA cleared.

One doctor used it to diagnose a man complaining of chest pains at 30,000 feet:

Eric Topol, MD, one of the physicians testing the AliveCor iPhone ECG … used it to help determine that a passenger on a flight he recently took was having a heart attack, prompting the pilot to make an emergency landing so that the passenger could be taken to a hospital.

Consisting of a case that that attaches to an iPhone or Android device, AliveCor’s Heart Monitor administers the test & results through AliveECG, their mobile app.

Individuals suffering from existing heart conditions (as well as those at risk) have the ability to track and record heart health, then submit to their cardiologist for further analysis.
