Spotlight on VPG Medical: Making Cardiac Monitoring Effortless

Wearable health monitoring solutions can be extremely valuable to both physicians and patients, but only if there is compliance. VPG Medical is reducing the need for behavior change by putting cardiac health monitoring in the background. Dr. Jean-Philippe (JP) Couderc, Founder and CEO of VPG Medical, describes how the HealthKam™ product uses the camera from your mobile device to measure cardiac activity through changes in the color of your skin. As a user spends time on their phone or tablet throughout the day, the HealthKam software will pick up on the subtle “blushing phenomenon” that takes place on a beat-to-beat basis, identifying normal cardiac patterns and alerting health care providers to changes. Hear how this digital health technology will help save lives, and how the Luminate accelerator helped advance the success of VPG Medical.
