17 Year Old Inventor Designs Blue-Tooth Enabled Heart Exam

Catherine Wong created a cellphone based version of the conventional ECG, which is like taking a “microscope snapshot” of your heart. The scan enlarges the tiny electrical signals created by your heart as it beats and maps it on a real-time graph.

Wong built the low-cost and portable cellphone compatible ECG test while still in high school. The cellphone ECG system could give over one billion people living in third world countries access to this basic test.

The cellphone ECG can connect individuals, without access to regular healthcare, to doctors miles away. Wong has won a slew of national awards and honors for her cellular electrocardiogram prototype.

Wong is aiming to further develop the system, get heart specialists on board and market the heart-monitor app. If you or anyone you know has a great idea or invention, please contact us at New Product Consulting.
