Spotlight on VPG Medical: Making Cardiac Monitoring Effortless

Wearable health monitoring solutions can provide valuable information to physicians, but only if patients wear them consistently. VPG Medical is putting cardiac health monitoring in the background to reduce the barriers to compliance. Dr. Jean-Philippe (JP) Couderc, Founder and CEO of VPG Medical, describes how the HealthKam™ software uses the camera from mobile devices to measure cardiac activity through subtle changes in the color of the skin. As a user spends time on their phone or tablet throughout the day, HealthKam will pick up on the “blushing phenomenon” that occurs on a beat-to-beat basis, identifying normal cardiac patterns and alerting health care providers to changes. Hear how this digital health technology will help save lives, and how the Luminate accelerator helped advance the success of VPG Medical.
