ORADELL, N.J., July 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Last week U.S. Congressman Scott Garrett, Representative of New Jersey's 5th District met with IneedMD Inc., manufacturers of the lifesaving technology called the EKG Glove. IneedMD's Co-Founder and CEO Dr. Govindan Gopinathan MD, a resident of Garrett's constituency has long since been impressed with Garrett's representation of the region. Dr. Gopinathan wanted to take time, while attending meetings in the Washington DC area, to sit down with the Congressman to offer a nonpartisan, physician's perspective on the lifesaving technology and evolution of the ECG (electrocardiogram) technology, in particular for the ambulatory use.

Congressman Scott Garrett and IneedMD Inc. CEO Dr. Gopinathan discuss mHealth and healthcare costs associated with treating America's aging population.

With the predicted increase in America's aging population and the urgent need to lower the costs associated with healthcare, the FDA cleared EKG Glove answers the call for saving lives by enhancing access to healthcare and reducing costs. IneedMD is leading the way for mHealth and Tele-health technology poised to change the way healthcare is administered in the future. This disposable, easy to use, 12 lead ECG offers a plethora of applications for military, hospital, public and retirement community use. "Our meeting went really well," explains Dr. Gopinathan MD. "The goal was to introduce this affordable, lifesaving technology to Rep Garrett and to show the endless real life scenarios for its use. As a physician I was quite impressed with the Congressman's vast knowledge on the topic of healthcare and medical technology."

The EKG Glove is disposable and virtually eliminates patient cross-contamination and staff infections caused by unsanitary "spaghetti" wires, used in recording conventional EKGs.  Using the EKG Glove drastically reduces medico-legal exposure associated with performing unsanitary EKG's. The EKG Glove also radically reduces the time required to prepare and administer a full, diagnostic 12 lead ECG. With minimal training, any capable adult can apply the EKG Glove and administer an EKG using existing (legacy) equipment or any number of new portable, wireless solutions. The consolidated functionality and form factor of the EKG Glove means cables aren't required to be reattached over and over again. It's portable, cost effective, and easier to use. The EKG glove can be worn for up to 24 hours therefore performing multiple exams on a single patient throughout the day is easier than ever before. The material used to make the glove does not cause skin allergy and the glove does not show up in chest X-rays.
