Eko Health has learned a bit about batteries and Bluetooth while developing AI-powered medical devices to help physicians detect cardiovascular disease.

Eko Health’s devices include hardware — in the form of its Duo and Core digital stethoscopes — and algorithms that analyze the acoustic and electrocardiogram (ECG) signals collected by those handheld devices. Together, their hardware and software is cleared by the FDA to detect heart murmurs, atrial fibrillation (AFib) and signs of low left ventricular ejection fraction.
