The Personal Electrocardiographic Expert (PELEX)

pelex+phone comboPELEX is the only FDA-cleared, professional-quality ECG system that combines high fidelity and versatility of diagnostic, 12-lead ECG with various types of ambulatory monitoring in a light, pocket-size unit. PELEX allows you to record an ECG, shows the data on a smart phone, and sends the information to a medical center for more advanced processing or directly to the phone of a healthcare professional.

The multipurpose, wireless system also provides high-fidelity monitoring of physical activity and body position.

Advantages of the PELEX wireless technological platform:

  • Small and lightweight
  • 24 high-resolution/high-speed data channels
  • Long operating times due to ultra-low power consumption (>15 hours in high-resolution, 1000 Hz /channel mode)
  • FDA-cleared, diagnostic quality, 12-lead ECG and other physiological data
  • Data transmission via Bluetooth to PC-based stations and smart phone for improved interoperability and convenience
  • Low system noise and channel cross-talk
  • Immediate data analysis and connectivity with the GE Healthcare cardiology database (MUSE)
  • Allows monitoring and/or real-time transmission of:
    • 8 ECG channels with the sampling frequency of 1000 Hz/channel
    • Electrical impedance for each electrode (as an indicator of the quality of skin-electrode contacts)
    • Cardiac pacemaker
    • 3 channels for 3-axial, high-fidelity accelerometer data, indicating changes in body position and mechanical movements
    • Patient-activated events

PELEX is protected by 7 US patents.

 

PELEX-MAX: An MRI-Compatible, Wireless, 12-Lead ECG, Blood Pressure, and Oximetry System

PELEX-MAX is a multisensor, wireless, mobile unit and review station designed to provide uninterrupted, high-quality data during MRI- and X-ray-guided procedures, as well as during patient transportation and multi-modal imaging. It addresses the need for continuous monitoring in the challenging environments of the interventional cardiology suite, ICU, operating room, and ER.  PELEX-MAX eliminates the need to detach and reattach different monitoring systems for different procedures and hospital units, improving the quality and efficiency of patient care.  Learn more.

The Arterial Pressure Expert (APEX)

The first multisensor, high-fidelity monitoring system for tracking cardiac and vascular activity to provide complete characterization of cardiovascular system dynamics, APEX provides continuous, cuff-free, nonobtrusive tracking of arterial pressure, as well as ECG, cardiac output, vascular resistance, and other important cardiovascular parameters. Its unique flexibility and range of sensors will address the needs of both researchers and clinicians. In 2016, the prototype was successfully tested in human subjects within an NIH-supported project. APEX is protected by 2 U.S. patents and several pending patent applications.
