InstantCheck Real Time Display ECG Recorder
InstantCheck ECG for home based ECG monitoring
InstantCheck is an advanced handheld ECG (electrocardiograph) monitor that records and displays a real time ECG (electrocardiogram) data. The InstantCheck RTD-ECG monitor is a personal single lead electrocardiographic monitor for recording and displaying real time ECG data for home health use. InstantCheck is intended for home based ECG monitoring, when home based ECG monitoring is deemed beneficial by medical professionals. The InstantCheck is a device intended for self testing by adult users.
The InstantCheck ECG is suitable for people, who wish to develop a self testing long term routine and for users, who already experience transient symptoms suggesting cardiac conduction abnormality. The InstantCheck Real Time Display ECG monitor records cardiac functions and displays the readings in a clear waveform. InstantCheck can help to detect heart irregularities at an early stage and therefore, InstantCheck can help to prevent worsening of the heart disease by early detection. InstantCheck is an excellent tool for people suffering with atrial fibrillation and other irregular heart rhythm disorders.
InstantCheck ECG enables voluntary monitoring and also makes it possible for the results to be made available as reference for healthcare professionals, such as general practitioners.
InstantCheck ECG background
InstantCheck ECG is a valuable tool for monitoring of the heart during normal daily activities and for compiling a personal cardiac data bank. InstantCheck software allows the users to download the recorded data to personal computer via USB interface port for the purpose of storing it for personal use or to make it available to their physicians retrospectively. However, please note that InstantCheck ECG is not a diagnostic tool and its readings are only intended for monitoring/self-monitoring and recording purposes. InstantCheck ECG is suitable for drug evaluation purpose, cardiac screening and ambulatory home based ECG monitoring.
If you wish to use the InstantCheck ECG, we recommend that you discuss this with your doctor to ensure that monitoring of your ECG at home is appropriate for you. InstantCheck ECG will help you to monitor and record your cardiac data and to share them with your doctor later.
InstantCheck will not tell you that you have a heart problem – only your doctor can analyse the data and diagnose your problem!

InstantCheck is an excellent tool for people suffering with atrial fibrillation and other irregular heart rhythm disorders.
InstantCheck features patient activated continuous mode and can function remotely as a simple event recorder for people with symptomatic or asymptomatic arrhythmia and those on certain heart medications or after cardio-thoracic surgery. InstantCheck ECG can also help primary care physicians to pre-screen patients with cardiac complaint. InstantCheck ECG is easy to use and there are 2 ways (methods) of use. The first way is to place the thumbs in InstantCheck’s specially designed built in conductive electrodes. The second way is to use external self adhesive ECG electrodes pads connected with the main unit by electrode extension cable.
- The first method of using InstantCheck ECG is the simplest as it does not require any electrodes to be placed on the user’s body. There are two specially designed integrated conductive electrodes on the main InstantCheck unit. All you have to do is to place your thumbs on the electrodes and gently press down to record the ECG signal. Your thumbs should not be moistened as the InstantCheck integrated electrodes are designed for conducting with dry thumbs. This method of using the InstantCheck ECG is very fast and can be done anytime and anywhere without any inconvenience.
- The second method of using InstantCheck ECG employs external skin electrodes placed on your forearms. The external skin electrodes are connected to the main InstantCheck unit by a special connective cable. This method provides a good option for people who cannot use the thumbs well or find the first method difficult to perform.
The InstantCheck displays the data in a clear and precise waveform, making the InstantCheck ECG perfect for self testing or home based ECG monitoring of cardiac problems under the supervision of medical professionals. InstantCheck ECG is a perfect tool for millions of people who suffer atrial fibrillation and other erratic heart rhythm conditions. InstantCheck stores up to 100 measurements and you can view them directly on the large LCD display. Alternatively, you can download them to a PC via USB port. Suitable USB cable is provided. User friendly software enables the data to be to be printed, saved as a graphic file or e-mailed. The InstantCheck ECG main unit displays the average Heart Rate (HR), the ST Segment (ST) and the QRS Interval. The PR interval and QT/QTc are provided, when using the software.
