The Actiwave Cardio is a waterproof ultra-miniature single channel ECG waveform recorder. It consists of two electrodes connected by a short lead which simply clip onto two standard ECG pads worn on the chest.
It also contains a tri-axial accelerometer, the signal from which allows the user to determine resting body position. For a single channel 24 hour holter recording the Actiwave Cardio gives unsurpassable wearability
The very small size allows for continuous monitoring in a wide range of patients and applications.
• Record a full single channel ECG Waveform for up to 31 hours.
• Simultaneously record 3-axes of acceleration.
• Combine heart rate and activity to calculate energy expenditure - validated
against Doubly Labeled Water.
• Use acceleration data to record body position.
• Non-invasive technology.
• Compact and lightweight.
• Non-volatile memory.
A comparison of Actiheart vs. Cardio:
The Cardio oﬀers short period waveform recording at greater resolution than the Actiheart, alongside the three axis accelerometry data. It opens wider possibilities in short term recording and waveform data analysis, but without the Actiheart's strong focus on longer term recording and energy expenditure. Both are capable of capturing data for Heart Rate Variability (HRV) analysis. Please read the application note or contact us if you need more guidance between the two.
The Cardio is also an integrated part of the Actiwave range, using the same PC control software and range of docks.
The Actiwave Cardio attaches to the chest using standard ECG electrodes with 4mm male snap connectors. An internal accelerometer measures 3 axes of acceleration which can be used to determine body position. Physiological signals are ampli- ﬁed, sampled and stored in non-volatile ﬂash memory.
The Cardio is ideally suited for Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and Inter-beat Interval (IBI) measurements in ambulatory settings. The Cardio measures the ECG waveform and 3-axes of acceleration. The data is transferred to the Cardio Viewer software (or can be exported to 3rd party software as EDF+ ﬁles) which performs the Heart Rate Variability analysis.
