    Novel wearable technologies measured cardiac function and machine-learning algorithms to assess patients with compensated and decompensated HF, according to a study published in Circulation: Heart Failure.
    “An important characteristic of the patch system described here is that, in addition to hemodynamic measurements, high-quality ECG-based heart rate and rhythm and accelerometer-based activity data are also inherently collected,” Omer T. Inan, PhD, assistant professor at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, and colleagues
