MobilDrTech Announces Collaboration with QT Medical for Release of New 12-Lead ECG
Sugar Land, TX, February 11, 2019
MobilDrTech, Inc. has entered into a partnership with award winning startup QT Medical to introduce the PCA 500, the world’s most compact, wireless, 12-lead ECG system for personal use. https://www.telemedicinesupply.com/collections/ecgs .
Last month at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, QT Medical announced the launch of its Personal Cardiac Assistant (PCA 500), the only FDA-cleared, hospital quality, 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) for personal use.
Several health trackers including Apple Watch 4 can record single lead ECGs and identify arrhythmias, including atrial fibrillation or AFib. Hospital grade 12-lead ECGs do much more and are used to diagnose a variety of cardiovascular conditions including arrhythmias, ischemic changes, location of changes (anterior, inferior), QT interval changes, etc.
Because special training is required for the operator to place the leads and conduct the ECG, 12-lead ECG diagnostics has historically been limited to clinical settings. QT Medical’s Personal Cardiac Assistant (PCA 500) is the first hospital grade, 12-lead ECG designed for use by the patient without trained medical personnel.
PCA 500 is digital, wireless, and mobile friendly. It is smaller than a deck of cards, fits in the shirt pocket, and works with iOS and Android phones and tablets.
The system uses flexible strips to combine the electronic leads and to help position them around the chest area. Instructions meant to be easily understood by average people help to make sure that each of the twelve leads is placed in the correct spot. Once the system is ready and the leads are placed, the control unit is activated to make a recording.
In a clinical trial, it was found that over 95% of patients with no training, and no experience with ECGs, could do a full 12-lead ECG test after reading simple instructions.
This revolutionary system will enable patients with heart disease to do timely, hospital quality, 12-lead ECG tests at their convenience and in the comfort of their homes and send detailed reports to their physicians. A prescription by a licensed physician is required for purchase of the PCA 500.

MobilDrTech Releases White Paper on "Telemedicine Stethoscopes"
MobilDrTech, Inc. releases a white paper titled “Telemedicine Stethoscopes” that identifies and compares the most commonly used real time telemedicine stethoscopes in the U.S. market.
Sugar Land, TX, January 8, 2019—(PR.Com)—// Telehealth, Telemedicine, Stethoscopes, Healthcare, Industry News, Market News, Press Releases, Products and Services
MobilDrTech, a respected vendor of telemedicine equipment and diagnostic devices (www.mobildrtech.com) has released a white paper identifying and comparing design, features and cost of today’s most frequently utilized telemedicine stethoscopes.
Many healthcare providers are rapidly adding remote auscultation to their telehealth and telemedicine programs. This white paper is provided as a free resource to assist them in their product research and selection process.
The white paper explores the evolution of stethoscopes used specifically for telemedicine encounters. The history of telemedicine stethoscopes can be traced back almost 25 years to a stethoscope with an analog output that worked directly with normal telephone lines. From that point until today, development of newer and better hardware and software has continued unabated.
Three charts summarizing the features and cost comparisons from the document can be downloaded here: https://dta0yqvfnusiq.cloudfront.net/usbst28863394/2018/12/Telemedicine-Stethoscope-Charts-5c1fb7177dd61.pdf

VIERA, FL – JULY 02, 2018 – RNK Products, Inc. (RNK) has created a Chrome compatible “application programmers interface” (API) for its PCP-SSP stethoscope signal processing software. This new API will enable Value Added Resellers (VARs) to easily integrate the FDA cleared stethoscope signal processing software into their own platform.
Key features of the PCP-SSP/API software include:
- Capability to use the audio channel of the video conferencing to pass the stethoscope signal.
- User selectable audio filters to enable clinicians to focus on lung sounds and heart sounds separately.
- Local loop back to enable a clinician with the patient to listen to the same sounds as the remote clinician.
Because it is built on Chrome and well matched to WebRTC video conferencing, PCP-SSP/API will work on any platform that hosts Chrome.
The PCP-SSP/API software works with the high performance PCP-USB stethoscope that dominates hospital/clinic telemedicine applications, including in the VA network. The PCP-USB is also the easiest to use telemedicine stethoscope on the market. It is a plug-n-play device that plugs into any USB port. It needs no batteries and there are no patient controls.
“The trend in telemedicine system development is to browser based technology using WebRTC for the video conferencing and Chrome for the browser,” says Rich Abbruscato, CEO of RNK. “PCP-SSP/API software and the PCP-USB stethoscope are ideal for those telemedicine systems serving all levels of acuity.”
To meet the demand for real-time stethoscopes in browser based telemedicine systems, RNK is pleased to move to the Beta stage for its Chrome compatible PCP-SSP/API software.

Press Release: RNK Releases FDA Class II Cleared Telemedicine Stethoscope Software
July 7, 2016 - RNK is pleased to announce the release of a simplified version of its FDA approved sSOIP telemedicine stethoscope software. This new software version is called PCP-SSP and works with RNK’s flagship PCP-USB stethoscope.
Key PCP-SSP features:
- Enables the stethoscope signal to be sent over the audio channel of a video conferencing connection. No separate network connection needed.
- Can automatically mute the room audio when stethoscope sounds are being sent.
- Provides filtering options for the clinicians to focus on heart sounds and lung sounds separately.
- Provides a local monitor capability so that the clinician with the patient can hear the same stethoscope sounds as the remote clinician.
Remote auscultation involves two software elements on the PC: 1) stethoscope signal processing and 2) network transport. PCP-SSP lets the video conferencing equipment handle the network connectivity as an MDDS, while it handles the stethoscope signal processing as an FDA cleared medical device. By performing the stethoscope signal processing functions and satisfying FDA requirements, PCP-USB relieves the video conferencing system of both technical and regulatory responsibilities.
All electronic stethoscopes are not approved for telemedicine. For example, an electronic stethoscope with an analog connection to the Microphone port of the telemedicine system PC requires that the PC perform the analog-to-digital conversion (ADC) and digital encoding. By doing that such a telemedicine system has inadvertently become subject to FDA regulations for a Class II medical device.
“We are very pleased to be able to respond to customer demand for a straight forward telemedicine stethoscope package that works with any Windows PC based video conferencing system and meets key clinical user needs while maintaining FDA compliance” says Rich Abbruscato, CEO of RNK.
