Nobody understands the value of lifesaving equipment more than the brave army of individuals we call first responders. When it comes to these high-stakes situations, it is plain to see the pivotal role that protective gear and modern machinery play in saving lives.
But, lives are saved in many ways, and a lot of the time it’s not in such explicitly dangerous situations. Cardiovascular Disease is the leading cause of mortality globally, and the world of bio-engineering is attempting to slow this widespread killer by offering us the lifesaving equipment that can combat it.
The Frontier X2 is a wearable Smart Heart Monitor developed by Fourth Frontier, a leading medical technology company. Fourth Frontier was founded based on the belief that everyday access to information about our bodies can allow us to avoid many of the negative outcomes that seem unavoidable today.
So, how can the Frontier X2 help?
The most distinctive aspect of this device is that it offers users the ability to record a continuous ECG for up to 24 hours. An Electrocardiogram (ECG) is a visual representation of your heart’s electrical activity, and it gives deep insight into the cardiac functioning of an individual during or following exercise.
While ECG recording has entered the mainstream recently, the Frontier X2 has the unique ability to do so in the most important situations: when you’re at your most active. Most commercially available ECG recorders either require you to be still or restrict your movement to get readings. This is somewhat counter-intuitive given many problems are showcased when the heart is put under strain during exercise. The sleek, lightweight Frontier X2 device is strapped to your chest to allow negligible interference with your activity so that whether you’re running on a treadmill or into a burning building, only the task at hand is on your mind. The chest-based positioning even doubles up to provide far more accurate readings than a wrist or otherwise positioned wearable.
Going one step further, the Frontier X2 actually analyses your heart health information in real-time, notifying you when you are pushing your heart in a dangerous manner. It records imperative metrics like Heart Rate, Heart Rate Variability, Breathing Rate, Training Load, Body Shock, and can inform you when you go above the acceptable threshold for some of them.
But, what if I don’t know how to use these metrics to my benefit?
Sometimes a significant amount of new information can be overwhelming, but what the Frontier X2 does is it allows you to not have to be the one thinking about it. Beyond this, Fourth Frontier offers a solution of its own, the Frontier Heart Program.
Information is power, and the power to keep your heart healthy is finally within the palm of your hands. So, take advantage of the technologically advanced times we live in, and become your own lifesaver.
