LONG ISLAND, N.Y., July 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Last week IneedMD Inc.'s CEO Dr. Govindan Gopinathan MD and CTO Robert Riola met with Congressman Steve Israel, Representative of New York's 3rd District. A growing employer in the region, IneedMD will be launching the distribution of its game changing EKG technology, the EKG Glove, from its Long Island location. The EKG Glove, a one-time use, disposable product, eliminates the risk of hospital acquired infections, a major problem now in ICUs Critical Care Unites and post-op recovery rooms.  The time taken to do a full 12 lead EKG is much less compared with conventional EKG machines, this allows more patients to be examined and improves the patient's EKG Experience. Since all the electrodes are pre-positioned in the EKG glove, the common mistake of connecting the wrong cable to the wrong electrode is eliminated when using the EKG Glove.

IneedMD's CEO and Co-Founder, Dr. Gopinathan talking to New York Congressman Steve Israel about the lifesaving technology behind the EKG Glove.

"It was wonderful to see how eager Congressman Israel was to meet with and help a constituent corporation," explains Dr. Gopinathan, IneedMD's CEO, inventor, and Co-Founder. "Seeing that we are poised to create jobs in New York's 3rd District,  the first thing Mr. Israel said was, 'How can I help?'"  The Congressman was between voting sessions, yet he was gracious enough to take a few minutes to meet with Dr. Gopinathan and Robert Riola, and allowed a quick demo of the proper positioning of the EKG glove on the chest.

Among industry experts, this FDA cleared technology has rapidly gained a reputation as a revolutionary product for enhancing the capabilities of clinical electrocardiography, specifically, making EKGs accessible to anyone, anywhere, anytime.  "This device can be applied to the chest of a person by anyone with a quick training in just a matter of minutes," explains Bob Riola, the CTO of IneedMD, Inc. The EKG glove is made of Mylar, a DuPont product; it does not cause skin allergy, does not conduct electricity and the glove when worn on the chest, and does not show up in a chest X-ray.

Unlike the confusion accompanying the traditional spaghetti wire ECG, the EKG Glove can be applied in just 5 easy steps. 1. Remove the large white liner from the glove by pulling the tab. 2. Insert right hand into the glove with thumb through the hole as clearly marked between electrodes V1 and V2, by a vertical arrow. 3. Position glove under left nipple of the patient with the thumb aligned with the sternum as indicated on the glove and firmly press glove down onto the patient's chest. 4. Peel back each of the extendable electrodes, peel off each protective electrode liner and position on the patient as illustrated on the glove and packaging. Firmly press down on the center of each of the 10 electrodes to ensure proper contact with the skin. 5. Connect the 10 pin connector of the cable assembly/adaptor to the glove and the other end should be connected to either our small rounded, light weight transmission box (IQ box) or if one wishes, to a compatible commercial EKG machine. You're done!
