AliveCor Launches iPhone Veterinary Heart Monitor Ahead of Human Version

Using the Veterinary Heart Monitor

The Veterinary Heart Monitor snaps onto your iPhone 4 / 4S like a case and wirelessly communicates with the app on your phone. No pairing between your iPhone and the Heart Monitor is required.

AliveCor ECG Hub provides you with anytime, anywhere, secure online access to all of your uploaded ECGs. Once you have the Veterinary Heart Monitor and the AliveECG Vet app you can create a account that gives you access to your personal ECG hub.


Screen more patients with no stress or shaving required in the majority of animals. Wet the use-area on the animal’s chest with alcohol, launch the app, and obtain an ECG. Take rhythm strips of any duration.

Accessible Anywhere.

Store ECGs in the app and securely in the cloud for later retrieval, e-mailing, or printing. Access your ECGs from any web browser by logging into your secure AliveCor Vet account.

Low Cost. High Value.

At only $199*, the Veterinary Heart Monitor gives you instant, portable screening access for all your patients. Your clients see the value in their animal’s care.

Accurate. Powerful.

Current veterinary testing demonstrates rate and rhythm accuracy. Our clinical-quality, single-lead ECG recorder leverages the power, display, and communication capabilities of the iPhone 4 / 4S.

AliveCor, developer of the highly-anticipated-but-yet-to-be-released iPhone-ECG attachment, has released a veterinary version ahead of the one for humans. The Veterinary Heart Monitor is intended for obtaining single-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) rhythms from dogs, cats, and horses. It has been designed for the iPhone 4 and 4S, and consists of a plastic case that snaps on the back of the phone and has two large metal electrodes on its back. The case wirelessly communicates with the app on the phone.

The corresponding AliveECG Vet app can be downloaded for free from iTunes. It displays the ECG waveform and recording can be performed continuously or for a set period of time. Acquired ECG’s can be annotated and are automatically stored in the cloud. ECG rhythm data can be shared over the web through AliveCor’s servers, or by printing or emailing a PDF.

As the demonstration video below shows, even for hairy animals shaving is often not necessary, and generously applying alcohol to the fur and conductive gel to the device’s electrodes results in adequate ECG’s. AliveCor is working on an attachment for other Apple and Android devices, although this is hampered by the breadth of different devices available (Apple’s legal department is currently working with Samsung on a unified solution). The vet device is now available for sale in the U.S. for $199 (iPhone not included) and is intended to be used by pet owners and licensed veterinary professionals. The human version meanwhile is still awaiting FDA approval.
