QUASAR develops Cardiac Monitoring technology

Aug '07
Quantum Applied Science and Research (QUASAR) Inc is currently developing the first truly noninvasive cardiac diagnostic and monitoring products. QUASAR has demonstrated excellent correlation and performance reliability exceeding leading heart rate monitors and also the conventional wet electrode system in clinical trials.

Since the QUASAR sensor operates without requiring direct electrical connection to the subject, ECG measurements can be made very fast, with no skin preparation, and through a layer of fabric.

As such, the QUASAR system dramatically increases the opportunities to obtain and use ECG information. Since the QUASAR system does not require the use of gels or adhesives, patient comfort is increased and the system can be used for 'tender' patient populations (e.g. elderly, allergic, pediatrics, and neonates), long-term studies, and rare events (syncope).

QUASAR's current prototype system for performing through-clothing ECG measurement includes two sensors and an electronics module. The sensors can be placed in an ECG belt, or sewn into a shirt.

A noninvasive, zero prep time ECG shirt system was developed for use with firefighters. The shirt offers the first ECG system of its kind, allowing almost instantaneous ECG collection. QUASAR has patent pending on its ECG shirt modality:
• Pull on, adjustable shirt for ECG
• Operates with off-the-shelf batteries
• Clinical quality data with subject at rest
• Excellent R-R wave determination even under high physical motion.
