AliveCor, Mayo Clinic developing AI screening test for heart condition that causes sudden death
Smartphone-connected ECG maker AliveCor is teaming up with the Mayo Clinic once again, this time to develop algorithms to screen for Long QT syndrome, a heart condition that can often cause sudden death, especially in children. The partnership also includes an additional, undisclosed investment in AliveCor from Mayo Clinic.
Long QT syndrome is named for the interval between the Q Wave and the T Wave on an ECG.
“For a number of people, they have a genetic mutation that causes the extension of the QT interval and they die,” AliveCor CEO Vic Gundotra told MobiHealthNews. “It’s particularly tragic when this happens to children. You have no warning. What you find out is that their kid suffered from genetic Long QT and it was never caught. Parents spend much of their efforts afterward trying to educate other parents and to put into place screening programs to catch these things. Because if you know you have genetic Long QT, there’s lots of ways to treat it and it’s very very treatable.”

Hack Your Fitness: Lumo Run Helps Improve Your Running Form And Push Harder
Lumo Run is different than other runcoaches.
"In a market that's awash with devices that count steps, measure heart rate, and provide all kinds of data on how we're running, the Lumo Run measures running mechanics and gives you information to improve your form and run better. The device sits in a rubberized clip that fits snugly on your waistband at the small of your back. You fire up the app and go for a run."
The new Lumo Lift App is now available with Exercises and Healthkit Integration
Lumo Lift is our wearable sensor that tracks posture, steps, distance, and calories burned. This small posture device provides gentle vibrational reminders for your posture whenever you slouch, coaching you to sit taller and stand stronger.
The following features are now available:
The App got an Logout Button. In addition, a "pain diary" is available. It asks customers if they have pain and asks them to rate it on a 0-10 scale. There are more questions to help the App to understand the customer. It asks what the user hopes to get from Lumo Lift, for example help by neck pain, help by back pain and so on...
Myontec shifts its smart clothing focus to elite athletes
Meet the muscle tracking shorts proving popular with professional sports teams
In 2014, Finnish company Myontec launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for its Mbody Coach smart shorts, a more affordable version of its connected fitness apparel that uses electromyographic (EMG) technology to measure muscle load. Combined with heart rate and cadence data MBody wanted to help you get fitter, improve technique and even identify when you were at risk of an injury. It promised to pack in a real-time audio coach, too.
Unfortunately, the campaign for the $500 garment failed to muster up the $99,000 it was hoping raise, enticing just 65 backers to part with their money.
"We launched the Mbody mass production product in early 2014 and actually won the Sport & Fitness category at the Wearable Technology Innovations World Cup in Munich in January of that year," Myontec's CEO Janne Pylväs told us. "Based on our research we felt there could be a market on the consumer side and that's what we were trying to achieve with our crowdfunding campaign. Unfortunately the market wasn't ready for that. It's still doable, but the demand for our product came from training centres and mainly from team sports."
A runcoach which also really works
The Lumo Run is a personal running coach built inside a small sensor that clips onto any pair of shorts (or leggings). With your smartphone nearby and headphones in, it delivers real-time audio insights into your running to help correct form, reduce the chances of injury and hopefully get faster.
This is Lumo's third wearable after the posture-correcting Lumo Back and Lumo Lift and it's harnessing much of the same sensor tech to give the Run its tracking powers.When the Lumo Run was first announced it was pitched as a pair of smart running shorts or capris that you can slip the sensor into. Then the decision was made to launch the Lumo Run sensor with a small rubber case so you can clip it onto any running kit and make it smarter. We reckon this makes a lot more sense.
