This article was originally published in Clinica
Heart failure and cardiovascular disease specialist Bioheart is on the verge of making its first company acquisition, with the purchase of MedicAlgorithmics, a Polish firm focused on developing electrocardiogram (ECG) technology. The deal, which is expected to close within the next 60-90 days, will see Bioheart gain worldwide rights to MedicAlgorithmics’ lead product, the Pocket ECG, a real-time wireless heart monitor and diagnostic system. The CE-marked product is described by Warsaw-based MedicAlgorithmics as being similar in size to an MP3 player, and is designed to automatically analyse a patent's heart beat and wirelessly transmit the data directly to a physician for the diagnosis, monitoring and potential treatment of arrhythmias and atrial fibrillation. Financial details were not disclosed.
