What is Cardioskin ? How could it helps doctors spot risk of stoke?
A T-shirt that constantly monitors the heart’s activity and detects abnormalities could help protect people against stroke — and may even help diagnose the cause of fainting.
The high-tech shirt, called Cardioskin, has electrodes stitched into the cotton fabric which carry out round-the-clock checks on the heart’s electrical activity.
These then connect to a tiny chip in the garment which wirelessly beams the results to an app on the patient’s smartphone.
The app is able to share the data with a cardiologist, who can assess it.
