Researchers in the Kate Gleason College of Engineering are working to develop a modified electrocardiogram device making use of wireless technology and a reduction in leads, or wires. The prototype being developed by Gill Tsouri, assistant professor of electrical engineering, is showing comparable accuracy when compared to traditional ECG system equipment. While intended for use in hospitals, medical facilities or in a patient’s home by on-site care givers, the application may be used to remotely assess soldiers in the battlefield.
