Placing SmartHeart® on the Body

Here’s how to correctly place SmartHeart® on the body:

  • Moisten the parts of the body coming in contact with the electrodes with a damp tissue (inner parts of the left and right arm, waist, and chest).
  • Place SmartHeart®️ against the center of the chest. For men, the SmartHeart®️ belt should be approximately once centimeter (1/2 inch) away from the nipple. For women, the SmartHeart®️ belt should be placed under the breasts as high up as possible. Now, tighten the belt and position the right arm, left arm, and waist electrodes.
  • Identify your chest size by drawing an imaginary line between the middle of the left underarm and the left hipbone. The connection point indicated the chest size.

Performing the ECG

Now that you have correctly placed SmartHeart®️ on your body, follow these instructions to perform the ECG:

  • Launch the app, click “Perform ECG,” and follow the in-app instructions.
  • To perform the ECG, sit comfortably, leaning slightly with both hands between the thighs.
  • Ensure all electrodes are in contact with the body and the app shows all electrodes as green. If the app shows an electrode in red, then readjust until it appears green. Tap the “START ECG” button once all electrodes are properly placed. Relax your muscles, lean back, and stay still until the ECG is complete.
  • Once the ECG has finished, follow the in-app instructions to view your results and forward the ECG to your physician.
