Building A Better Heart Monitor Without Missing A Beat

A Device for Passive Patient Metrics

TZ Medical manufactures a hand-held device used by heart patients to monitor instances of arrhythmia called the Aera CT. About the size of a smartphone, the device gathers and reports data to the patient and his or her physicians. It also transmits information, which can be collected for FDA trials. To fit into the daily lives of the patients, the device needed to be water-resistant and allow the LCD display to be clearly viewed.
