Moving sophisticated technology from the hospital to the patient at the point of care.
1972/3: First pilots to research the efficacy of long term on-line remote monitoring of cardiac Patients to solve the problem of detecting infrequent arrhythmia and save heart attack patients.
1972/3: First pilots to research the efficacy of long term on-line remote monitoring of cardiac Patients to solve the problem of detecting and documenting arrhythmia and cardiacischemia/infraction.

2002: First pilot of the audio-video communication with a patient at home using the TV set for communication and the Smart Chair
embedded with vital signs for automatic documentation of vital signs.
2017: The innovative PhysioGlove received FDA clearance for patient self- use. With the PhysioGlove anyone can perform 12 lad ECG on himself in less than a minute.
