    Ambulatory long term cardiac diagnostics is still not optimally solved. We have developed a new system that can overcome this gap in diagnostics. The new system consists of an adhesive patch-like wearable miniaturized device for electrocardiogram (ECG) data acquisition with further processing of acquired data. The new patch-like wearable device is able to record data for up to 7 days and significantly reduces discomfort to the user by its cable-less design, small size and direct attachment to the skin surface. This three lead system also detects ECG waveform morphology. It is aimed to spot heart rate, irregular beat episodes and circadian variations. Such a device has high potential to be used for both aerospace and terrestrial applications.
