[box]MyDiagnostick is a medical device, intended to discriminate atrial fibrillation, a common arrhythmia, from normal cardiac rhythm. Atrial fibrillation can cause a stroke, so it’s important to know when it occurs. MyDiagnostick is an ECG recorder that has the shape of a stick with metallic handles – electrodes – at both ends. When holding MyDiagnostick with your two hands, it will automatically switch on and offer results in one minute. The device can record and store over 100 ECG’s. The ECG strips stored in MyDiagnostick can be retrieved through a USB connection by the physician, enabling clinical confirmation and documentation.[/box]
