Spyder,: cloud-based continuous ECG monitor

WEB Biotechnology Pte Ltd (, which makes the world's first cloud-based continuous ECG monitor called the Spyder, has achieved CE certification for its ECG monitoring solution. The company, which is based in Singapore, makes a revolutionary wireless ECG monitoring system meant to replace traditional hospital remote monitoring systems such as the Holter ECG, which are wired recorders. These are bulky and limited to a maximum of 48 hours of monitoring because they cannot be self-administered.

The 48g Spyder employs a leadless sensor, attached directly to the chest and employs a wireless paired smartphone to display the ECG and to transmit signals to a secured cloud server. The inconspicuous sensor allows continuous monitoring for up to 3 days on a single charge, increasing the sensitivity of detection of abnormal heart rhythms. In trial test in Singapore, patients have worn the system for up to 2 weeks at a time. For patients, the ability to move about, even travel across borders with the system, is now a reality.
