3. The future

This method could speed up the ECG reading process as patients can wear the device for a reading while they wait in A&E or in a clinic waiting room. 

This could also be used as a screening device for patients with cardiac symptoms for a more accurate reading in the patient’s organic habitat rather than in an intimidating clinical space.
