VivaQuant is a digital health care company providing remote cardiac monitoring services to clinics and hospitals under the Rhythm Express brand. The company's highly differentiated mobile cardiac telemetry (MCT) wearable, the RX-1 mini, enables near real-time observation of a patient's heart rhythm and can be comfortably worn for up to 30 days. The mini was designed from the ground up to provide the trifecta of wearables - a device that is easy to wear, easy to use, and provides accurate diagnostic data. The mini contains proprietary noise cancelling algorithms that result in high-clarity ECGs, and our proprietary wavelet analytics, enabled by machine learning, provide near-perfect identification of cardiac arrhythmias and facilitate fast diagnosis. We provide 24/7/365 oversight of incoming patient data from the mini, where millions of heartbeats are translated into actionable information which physicians can use as an aid in diagnosis and establishing life-saving care plans for patients.
