Treatments can be quite expensive and cost people a lot of money which most often than not they cannot afford. There is good news from Indian scientists who recently developed a cheap machine for heart patients.

According to a media report, the scientists at Bhaba Atomic Research Centre have developed a small credit card-sized electro cardiogram (ECG) that can help many people. The machine developed can record the electrical activity of the heart and can most often prevent heart attacks in patients. The tele-ECG machine can transmit an ECG to the mobile phone immediately.

 

Interestingly, the 12 channel device will cost only Rs 4,000 and may just be the smallest in the world. It can be charged through a mobile charger and the data can be transmitted through any mobile network in the world.
