A watch-type single-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) wristband developed by Guangdong Lifesense Health Electronics has become the first ECG monitoring smartwatch in China to be awarded CFDA (China Food & Drug Administration) certification.
Lifesense Health is committed to providing general and smart health products using health IoT and vital data collected from users in the fields of sports health and chronic disease management. The company has created various mobile internet products such as the Lifesense Cloud smart health cloud platform, Lifesense Sports, Lifesense Health and Lifesense Doctor.
Using intelligent hardware, product technologies and data analysis capability, Lifesense Health has achieved a seamless connection between users, products and third-party health services. This provides individuals and families with a personalised health service for preventive, treatment, rehabilitation and health promotion.
This single-lead ECG wristband is capable of warning and preventing cardiovascular diseases and is a significant contribution in general and smart health. The product has an ECG monitoring function. If the user has a potential health risk, they can send their data to the doctor. Through the cloud platform, the doctor can immediately analyse the patient's abnormal data from multiple perspectives and follow up more comprehensively on the patient's health status.
At present, Lifesense Health is expanding its contribution in insurance, chronic disease management and cardiovascular disease management, and it is reaching each user in these segments via its product applications. The company offers a customisation platform covering hardware, software and services and it is achieving growth in both its own platform and with its partners.
This single-lead ECG wristband is a breakthrough that could relieve the bottleneck of traditional medical systems, gradually pushing a monopolised medical resource onto the market, and thus bringing a benefit to patients.
Established on 2002, Lifesense employs around 2000 people and has two manufacturing bases in Zhongshan, and two R&D centres elsewhere in China, plus an international sales office in Singapore. Lifesense Medical specialises in the R&D, manufacture and sales of smart wearables, health scales, BPM and medical devices, and the development and operation of a smart healthy cloud platform.
