We have created a prototype electrocardiogram (ECG) device to screen rural populations of developing countries for cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). Our device is affordable and easy to use so it can be accessible to as many people as possible. We leverage widespread SMS infrastructures to remotely report cardiovascular health to doctors; thus not requiring the doctor to be on-site to interpret test results. Our device can be used to screen people for cardiovascular warning signs. Therefore, it is not meant to be a diagnostic tool.
