Two new studies presented at the American College of Cardiology’s 67th Annual Scientific Session suggest mHealth wearables can help detect cardiac issues which could lead to a stroke.
The studies were conducted by the Cleveland Clinic and the Scripps Translational Science Institute, according to an mHealthIntelligence report.
According to the report, the studies add to past literature backing digital health tech in detecting atrial fibrillation.
As part of the study, the Cleveland Clinic used an Apple Watch fitted with a unique band developed with embedded ECG sensors. The band was created by AliveCor.
