REKA Health Expands Its Operation Into The U.S.
SAN DIEGO, Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- REKA Health Pte Ltd., a Singapore-based provider of mobile health technology products and services opened it's U.S. headquarters, REKA Health, Inc. in the biotech hub of San Diego, CA. Production is being ramped up as they prepare to sell into the U.S. market, providing patients and healthcare providers in this market with access to its innovative telehealth solutions to improve care quality and facilitate remote health monitoring.
Members of the senior management attended the mHealth Summit in DC to showcase their FDA-cleared E100 cardiac event monitor and cloud platform. The mHealth Summit, the largest event of its kind, brings together leaders in government, the private sector, industry, academia, providers and not-for-profit organizations from across the mHealth ecosystem to advance collaboration in the use of wireless technology to improve health outcomes in the United States and abroad. Both the commercial look and feel of the device, as well as, the agnostic connectivity options were met with an overwhelming response.
The E100 allows patients who experience transient symptoms suggestive of cardiac arrhythmia to record and store the events as they occur using either the standard or integrated platinum thumb electrodes. The user can then transmit them to the clinician for diagnosis using a proprietary cloud platform that connects the patient and the physician whenever and wherever. The company believes that accurately screening for arrhythmias can lead to early diagnosis for one of the most prevalent health problems in the United States.
"Our technology will contribute to patients and clinicians interacting in a timely, cost-effective way that will ultimately improve outcomes," said Ron Richard, CEO of REKA Health, Inc., a veteran leader in innovative medical devices and related technologies within the health care sector. "REKA products and services provide the health care system with an affordable and less intrusive approach to competing designs, which will improve compliance when using the products in the home care setting."
