Rhythm Diagnostic Systems, Inc. began operations in August 2012, in the San Francisco Bay
Area. It aims to offer very light, wearable, unobtrusive, band-aid-like, optionally reusable
MultiSense Strips that measure and record (and eventually transmit) a number of cardiopulmonary
physiological parameters, as well as the wearer’s relative physical exertion data. A
proprietary design minimizes power consumption and thus reduces battery bulk to enhance
comfort and wearability.
A company-owned manufacturing facility is currently producing, for an upcoming clinical trial, a
run of recording Strips of about 100x27x3 mm, weighing less than 16g, and capable of detecting
and recording up to ten days’ worth of: Heart Rate, clinical quality ECG, Oxygen saturation,
Respiratory Rate, relative respiration depth, relative level of physical exertion, and temperature,
as well as positional information. Examples of these data will be shown. The recording Strip
may be read directly following an ambulatory testing period, and its data interpreted within
minutes in the physician’s office using software available on a laptop or tablet. A real time
transmitting version of this Strip is under development.
These MultiSense Strips potentially address a number of applications and markets. These
vary from the diagnoses of intermittent and asymptomatic/symptomatic arrhythmias in patients
suspected of cardiac disorders, to the wireless monitoring of ICU/CCU patients and ambulatory
in-hospital or in-hospice patients. Other applications include the screening of patients with sleep
disorders, the monitoring of progress of athletes in training, or the watching over of a variety of
professionals in stressful or risky situations.
