In the recently published TEASE-study (BMJ Open, Aug 2020) the Coala Heart Monitor was used to evaluate 100 patients over 28 days following cryptogenic stroke. The second publication (BMJ Open, Oct 2020) now reports the results of the patients’ own stated experience of using the Coala.
In summary, the stroke patients reported very high satisfaction with the Coala. The Coala was reported easy to use and that it increased the feel of security. Overall, patient feasibility was very high, and the researchers concluded that Coala is an excellent, patient-friendly device for monitoring stroke patients.
