Real-time connection between patient and clinician

Patients who use COALA love the experience, ease and comfort of immediate response. It’s often prescribed to patients with palpitations, who might have been alarmed by their consumer monitors, or for long term monitoring in daily life.

The COALA is proven to be 300% more accurate than standard 1-lead ECG solutions, typically used in watches and other portable ECG’s. For more information, see here.

Clinically proven to improve quality of life

The Coala was used in the groundbreaking RedHeart Study which was run by Karolinska Institute (Stockholm, Sweden) and included nearly 1,000 women and over 280,000 ECG recordings in everyday life. This study showed an increase in quality of life in women with palpitations, because of the instant results that helped reduce symptoms, anxiety and depression. For more information, see here.

Meet the patients

My Coala helps me feel calm, it gives me a sense of security and control. I think it's simply amazing!

Alexandra Charles von Hofsten, Founder of the 1.6 & 2.6 million club

I always have my Coala with me. With the Coala I can keep track of my heart and feel safe. We need to talk more about atrial fibrillation.

Henrik Eriksson
Winner of Vasaloppet, the world's largest cross-country ski race

I am absolutely sure that if I would have had the Coala earlier, the lead time from my first arrhythmias, to worries and finally getting a diagnosis would have been so much quicker. Coala has meant so much for my wellbeing and comfort.
