AirStrip Technologies has recently teamed up with GE healthcare to assist in rolling out the mobile app for the iPads and iPhones as part of the MUSE cardiology information system. And after looking up some of the demos available online and on YouTube, it looks to be a very useful app.

The new system allows the iPad to display ECG data, and allows for the end user to interact with it through eh ability to perform measurements and such. Some additional functionality that this application offers cardiologist is the ability to compare multiple ECGs, by overlaying one onto the other.

One challenge that remains for many is how to ensure long battery life on some such devices, especially when there is a lot of data being transmitted via wireless, which essentially demands more power.

This product is currently available for demos in iTunes, but if any physician is interested n the purchase of this product, they will need to contact GE directly.

But for all the Android fans out there, there will be a future release of this app on the Android platform.
