The medical product industry is a billion dollar business. With all the products, it gets hard to separate the truth from the lies and the good from the bad. In my years of experience, there are some products that tend to stand out. For those who suffer from heart disease or just want to monitor their health, these products are a must.
KARDIA by AliveCor
The go-to portable EKG device at your fingertips.
You’ve got two main options for this one, there’s a KardiaMobile, which is a domino-sized device or the KardiaBand which you can use as the strap for your smartwatch.
With both options, all you do is open the Kardia App on your smart phone, put your fingers on the electrodes and see the results instantly.
The whole process only takes 30 seconds.
It’s a little bit on the pricey side, but you can pickup all Kardia products here.
FITBUD STEP COUNTER by 3DActive
A lot of companies are now adding the step-counting feature to their fitness apps, but even today, I still find the most reliable pedometer is the good ol’ plastic one your grandfather probably uses. This particular model adopts a more modern design, but is still durable, waterproof and most importantly, accurate.
It’s easy to check, has a battery that will last years and when its attached to a lanyard, it shows people the you mean business.
You can pick up a FitBud Step Counter here.
I hope these products help you as much as they’ve helped me. If you decide to try any of them out, let me know how they worked.
