About the Project
Clinical-grade ECGs are overpriced.
Manufacturers and retailers are ripping people off.
We are building a decent open-source alternative.
Medical devices should be accessible and affordable for everyone.

MobilECG II is a successor to MobilECG I. It will be an open source clinical-grade Holter ECG developed by two engineers in Europe in their free time.
|Started Project||Final Product|
Current Status: Developing Electronics Prototype, schematics available for download
December 6, 2014
September 22, 2014 - MobilECG II 3D model
This is what mobilECG II will approximately look like.
September 16, 2014 - MobilECG II schematics on GitHub
Thanks to the hard work of Robert, the preliminary schematics of the first prototype are available on GitHub.
It contains known bugs and we are still working on it, but its main structure will remain the same.
August 30, 2014 - MobilECG II update
There will be a single RGB led indicating the status of the device. The case of the prototype will be 3D printed.
We have started working on the schematics and the basic functions of the analysis software.

August 16, 2014 - MobilECG II
Robert and I are happy to announce that we have started working on MobilECG II in our free times. Robert has 7 years of experience in developing medical hardware and software.
MobilECG II will have clinical-grade Holter functionality as well, and will be open source from the beginning.
We no longer aim to be the manufacturer. Instead, we want to see price competition between many independent manufacturers.
We would be more than happy to discuss the project with doctors, especially with doctors from developing countries. Please contact us at peter dоt isza аt gmail dоt com.
