A final agreement will be subject to TSX Exchange, Board, and shareholder approvals as well as any required third-party consents, satisfactory due diligence, and the signing of a definitive agreement.
About H'andy sana 211
A comparison study demonstrated that the 1-lead ECG via the H'andy sana produced identical results with the corresponding leads of a standard 12-lead ECG record. Both ECG records were tested in parallel under clinical conditions. Following the study, Dr. Hans Lehmkuhl, chief cardiologist at the German Heart Centre in Berlin, Germany stated that he was "impressed and satisfied with the quality of the ECG recordings using the H'andy sana phone."
The H'andy sana 211 has a 2.8 inch full touch screen and full-fledged mobile phone capabilities, including a multimedia suite, internet browser, calendar, built-in camera with screen viewfinder and dedicated menus. Additionally, it offers a "health suite" of services to store data like blood pressure, cholesterol, blood glucose, a drug reminder and ECG monitoring. The user only needs to press two fingers on the phone's edges for 30 seconds for the phone to pick up an ECG reading.
The H'andy sana 211 can enable patients to monitor their health situation on their own, which facilitates their work and leisure activities.
