The bulky and intrusive wires that have been a mainstay of cardiovascular care might soon be no more. Endotronix has begun development on minimally invasive wireless monitoring devices that can transmit from within a patient’s body. These devices which use a combination of radio frequency identification (RFID) and microelectromechanical (MEMS) technology will monitor a patient’s cardiovascular health from within their heart and blood vessels. The system allows for real-time monitoring of patient health not only in the medical care facility but also at home, reducing treatment costs associated with prolonged hospital stays. There is the potential for this technology to benefit over 60 million people in the United States who have risk factors or developing cardiovascular disease.
Intellihot has developed a state-of-the-art demand tankless water heater that uses conventional materials and advanced electronics. This green water heater extracts nearly 98% of energy, provides unlimited hot water and occupies very little space. Current tank water heaters in US homes run continuously and provide a limited amount of hot water. They are large, utilize less than 60% of gas energy burned and last only 7 years. Intellihot’s ultra low installation cost and 20-year life will revolutionize the water heater market and establish Intellihot as the market leader.
