Marathon runners could get live heart monitors

Thursday October 30th, 2014

Doctors have successfully undertaken live monitoring of the heart health of athletes running a marathon, it has been announced.

Developers say the technology may help prevent the fatal rhythm disorders that can affect runners unexpectedly.

It has been tested in two marathons in Germany.

The technology links continuous electrocardiogram surveillance to the mobile phone network and to a telemedicine centre.

During the two races five healthy runners, with an average age of just over 40, tested the technology, which used Bluetooth to move data from the ECG to a mobile phone.

In the first race the technique proved flawed - but developers undertook more work on the software and retested it six months later.
