Device player CorTronix says it has completed the development of a new medical telemetry system for cardiac patients and is now ready to begin testing the technology.

“This system is ready to go and we will begin pre-clinical testing of the device on live patients in the very near term,” said Yoel Palomino, the president of CorTronix (Doral, FL, USA). “I’m proud to unveil this unique single platform device that will potentially replace the large bulky units commonly found in hospitals today.”

CorTronix says a distribution partner based in Saudi Arabia will take receipt of CorTab samples over the next couple of weeks, when “distance testing” of the product will also begin.

The company says the telemedicine market is poised for a surge in growth and that technology is expected to be the fastest-growing segment of this market.

“After spending the last few years in the development stage working in the design, programming and system integration of CorTab we are very happy to deliver to our shareholders and partners the first component of the CorTronix telemedicine system,” said Palomino.

Describing its core competency as “mobile cardio devices”, CorTronix says its goal is to create a complete product line of mobile devices with the capacity to “acquire and process patient data through a consolidated network”.

The company says it working to integrate medical procedures with wireless technology using its proprietary system.

It claims to be in the final stages of developing the infrastructure for a global health network that will allow medical professionals to diagnose and analyze patient data remotely and in real time.

CorTronix says each of its products is equipped with a electrocardiogram acquisition and conversion integrated circuit that reduces design costs and printed circuit board size by 200%.

“This, in turn, will translate into elegant and powerful medical telemetry devices,” said the company in a statement.
