Emergency Medical Technologies (EMT) recently published the first in man, prospective, single-blinded, phase I study to evaluate a novel, watch-based pulse detection device in the journal Heart Rhythm. The sensor used in the study is EMT’s Wriskwatch(tm), which has the look and feel of a normal wristwatch, but acts as both a motion sensor and a pulse sensor designed to identify a patient in cardiac arrest, and features built-in fall detection and panic button.
