Oxitone is a specially designed monitor worn on the wrist that takes minute-by-minute readings of the users heart rate and oxygen levels in the blood. Many people who die from heart attacks could have been saved if they had gotten to the hospital in time, and this monitor aims to stop this from occurring.

The device uses two optical sensors and another special high-tech tool to alert the user that their heart rate is beating at an abnormal and potentially dangerous speed. It can also be synched with Bluetooth, Android or iPhone devices for ease of function.

Oxitone has been selected to participate in GE Healthcare’s startup the Health Academy Entrepreneurship Program, which provides healthcare entrepreneurs the tools to push their product into the healthcare market.

The watch is expected to cost $200 and is due to go on the market in 18 months time.
