Issues related to device
WIWE consists of two parts: WIWE itself is the medical device with which you take the recording, and the application set up on your mobile/ tablet.
WIWE can be used with a mobile application to record single-channel electrocardiogram (ECG).
The recording itself takes only 60 seconds.
The application is capable of showing the entire recorded ECG wave. Furthermore, it can detect heart rate fluctuation and, in severe cases, atrial fibrillation (AF) that is shown by the ventricular heterogenety (VH) results.
It can measure the Blood oxygen level and the Heart rate.
It has other built-in functions, such as a pedometer and a calorie counter.
No, WIWE is not meant for predicting heart attacks. It is capable of calculating the risks of a possible Atrial Fibrillation and Ventricular Heterogenity, which can lead to a Stroke or a Sudden Cardiac Arrest.
Sudden Cardiac Death is an unforeseen, natural death caused by Sudden Cardiac Arrest, emerging independently of age and other conditions. At the same time, heart attack is myocardial necrosis caused by circulation disorder.
To detect heart attack multi-channel electrocardiogram is need to be done simultaneously. Heart attack is not detectable by single-channel electrocardiogram (ECG) which is the main function of WIWE.
WIWE detected Atrial Fibrillation with more than 98% accuracy out of 10 000 measured ECG waves.
There is a built-in pedometer, capable of counting steps, distance and burnt calories. To measure this latter one there is a built-in acceleration sensor.
Using the measured data charts can show you broad picture of your activity, not to mention the interesting milestones for motivation.
The application saves the results and stores them on your phone. No data will be sent or stored anywhere else, so only you can share them, if you want to.
The amount of data stored depends on the capacity of the smartphone or tablet.
One user profile can contain 1000 ECG recordings.
WIWE works with a couple of Android and iOS smartphones and tablets.
For further information please check our compatibility list here.
You can get more information concerning these topics either in the applications info section or on the website through the following link here.
When WIWE is fully charged - in this case 4 green LEDs are glowing - it can take approximately 100 recordings.
When there are 2 or less leds glowing on WIWE, you need to charge it.
You can charge the device using a microUSB cable (included). Whilst charging, one red LED will glow until WIWE’s fully charged.
The glowing of the red error signaling LED indicates that the ECG signals are not stable or low. In this case please repeat the recording.
From this point of wiew WIWE requires the same carefullness as your smartphone or tablet which runs the application.
The device is not water-proof, it can be cleaned with soft, clean cloth.
Questions about using WIWE
Instructions for using WIWE can be found on the website's Support page in the "How to get started?" section. There is also a Getting started guide in the application which walks you through the first steps needed for using WIWE.
Anyone can use WIWE to record ECG, although the algorithm which calculates the risks is optimized for at least 18 year old adults. Considering this, the evaluation for anyone younger than 18 won’t be 100% correct.
Yes, of course, your family members can use it too.
With WIWE you can create different user profiles in the application, so you can store data separately.
Please take recordings 3 times a week in case the measured data is in the the normal value range.
Should your results often show data out of the normal value range or should you experience fast heart beating, fluttering in the chest, shortness of breath, it is recommended to take a measurement with WIWE which you should send to your doctor along with a description of your symptoms.
In case the following symptoms are severe, please seek medical advice first before taking a measurement with WIWE.
You can send your ECG recording to your doctor through the built-in share function in the application.
Also, you can send your ECG recordings to anyone else from your smartphone’s contact list or you can type in a new e-mail address.
You will only need WIWE to take recordings, it will store the data in its own memory.
To check the results you will need to use the WIWE application, which you can download to many Android and iOS devices for free.
For further information please check our compatibility list here.
No, the communication between your phone/tablet and WIWE is using Bluetooth, so you won’t need internet connection. Your results will be stored on the phone/tablet.
If you want to share your recordings though, you will need some kind of internet connection.
It is suggested that you place your phone at least 30 cms (cca. 1 ft) distance from WIWE during recording.
During the usage of the application the distance between WIWE and phone/tablet should be maximum 10 meters (cca. 33 ft).
If the recording doesn’t start, then you need to check, if Bluetooth is on and your phone or tablet is connected to WIWE.
When this part is done, please follow the instructions the application gives you.
If the battery is flat, you can charge WIWE with a microUSB cable. A red LED will show that it’s charging until it switches off.
Recording is suggested to be carried out in relaxed circumstances. If possible, during the recording sit relaxed, breath steadily, don’t speak or move. Any muscle movement might disturb the recording process.
Users with pacemakers can use WIWE safely, it won’t disturb the accuracy of the recording and neither will the WIWE disturb your pacemaker.
One recording takes 60 seconds, which is enough time to make significant results.
WIWE cannot be used for continuous monitoring, it is meant to record short ECG waves.
There is no known limit in the recording of the heart rate, so WIWE can give accurate results in the highest pulse threshold, too.
If there is yellow sign on the evaluation screen, please repeat the recording within 5 minutes.
If there is red sign on the evaluation screen, please repeat the recording immediatelly. If the sign shows red again, contact your practitioner.

Questions by health experts
In our case ventricular heterogenity is the diversity of the ventricle’s heart muscle cells’ bioelectrical property. This heterogenity is present even in healthy cases as predetermined (basically tense connection between the cells). But, in pathological cases the heterogenity of the cells grow and the aligned working of the heart muscle cells becomes worse. This calls forth the lability of the bioelectrical phenomenons. This instability increases the risk for developing dangerous ventricular arrhythmias, hereby increasing the risk for Sudden Cardiac Arrest.
WIWE has been issued Class IIa CE mark in medical device category.
Getting the FDA clearance is in progress.
No, WIWE records single-channel ECGs and is not intended to be a replacement for a 12-lead ECG.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest is the unexpected stop of the beating of the heart. Because of this, the blood can’t reach the brain and other vital organs in the body. If this condition doesn’t get treated within minutes, it causes death, which is called Sudden Cardiac Death.
The data recorded will be stored on the users smartphone or tablet.
No, there are no known medical contraindications which could prohibit the use of WIWE.
Yes, you still need to see the doctor. WIWE can’t replace medical care, it enables you to check your hearts functioning.
You will have the opportunity to make a recording with WIWE if you do not feel well and send it to your doctor rigth away or show him/her later.
This function is not yet available.
