AliveCor said yesterday that it has inked a strategic partnership deal with Best Buy to offer its KardiaMobile electrocardiogram devices at their retail locations across the U.S.
The Mountain View, Calif.-based company’s KardiaBand is a wrist-worn electrocardiogram device designed to detect atrial fibrillation and normal sinus rhythm.
AliveCor said that the deal marks the first time its products will be available in consumer electronics stores, and that its KardiaMobile device will be available at more than 800 locations.
“KardiaMobile is the most clinically-validated personal ECG in the world. Our partnership with Best Buy is an important step in making heart care more convenient, more accessible, and less expensive than ever before,” CEO Ira Bahr said in a press release.
Last month, AliveCor said that it won expanded FDA 510(k) indications for its KardiaMobile, now cleared for detecting bradycardia and tachycardia.
