Researchers Indigenize Holter Monitor

Iranian researchers have indigenized the Holter monitor, a battery-operated portable device that measures and records a patient’s heart’s activity (ECG), by using different software.
“My team aimed to assist heart patients in a timely and cost-effective manner so as to prevent exacerbation of their heart problems,” said Masoud Nadi, project manager, Mehr News Agency reported.
“The foreign models cost from $1200-$2500, and the local device will be mass produced at around $100 per monitor,” he said.
According to statistics, 20 million people in Iran suffer from heart disease. There are around 300 heart centers in the country.
