MOCAheart is a heart scanner that is small enough to carry around either on a key fob or attached to the back of a smartphone. It uses medical grade technology and materials so is accurate and robust. It measures heart rate (bpm) and blood oxygen levels, which can be monitored via the MOCAheart smartphone app. Over time data collected via the app can establish trends and patterns.
The team of scientists, engineers, designers and a physician from Stanford University, California College of the Arts, and John Hopkins University have also developed the "MOCA index", which enables users to easily understand their health status (0 no cause for concern, 1 normal, 2 high, 3 unhealthy seek medical advice, and 4 indicates a medical emergency).
An additional feature, is the ability to share status updates with family members. This is particularly helpful for those with ageing parents and grandparents.
MOCAheart can be pre-ordered now for $119 (£76), but will retail for around $169 (£110). Estimated delivery date is April 2015 and international shipping is available.
