The wEvent monitor, which offers wireless transmission of symptom and activity reporting, provides a higher level of patient convenience and better quality of information.

CardioNet president and chief executive officer Joseph Capper said with the launch of wEvent, the company has expanded its comprehensive portfolio of remote cardiac monitors.

"This new wireless device provides physicians a much improved replacement to their traditional event monitor," Capper added

"Following the roll out of MCOTos earlier this year, wEvent marks our second major product launch of 2012.

"Looking forward, we remain committed to introducing the most advanced technologies designed to meet the needs of an evolving healthcare market."
