Committed to improving the lives of their customers by providing high quality telemedicine products, Bionet was founded in 1999 and has focused on the cutting edge of telemetry service ever since. Bionet America, formed in September 2002 as a branch of Korea's Bionet Co. Ltd., currently serves North America. "Bionet" is a combination of the terms "bio-electronics" and "network." The company's focus is discovering telemetry solutions by using network interfaced bio-signal measuring devices. Bionet's products are FDA-approved and adhere to international standards. In line with the company's slogan, "Enhancing Healthcare Service," Bionet has a research and development center that ensures products reflect the needs of their customers. In order to uphold the continued quality of its products, Bionet limits the number of distributors and dealers with which it works. During the beginning of the year 2000, Bionet introduced an EKG machine with 12 channels called CardioCare 2000. This enabled the company to continue making a name for itself in the global economy through the production of patient and fetal monitors. The CardioCare 3000, which provides a printed data analysis in under a minute, followed soon after. Bionet also offers customers free EKG software that allows them to print, compare, magnify, save, and transfer EKGs.
After being established in 1915 as The Cummings Machine Company, Midmark Corporation went through a series of name changes before finally arriving at its current incarnation in 1978. Midmark International is located on six different continents, in places like North, South, and Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and the Pacific Rim. Midmark bases its headquarters in Versailles, Ohio, with four United States subsidiaries. A branch of Midmark Corporation, Midmark Medical, acquired Brentwood Medical Products in 2000, which further fueled the company's interest in releasing digital diagnostic products. Prior to joining Midmark Corporation, Brentwood Medical Products, a leading digital medical diagnostic technology provider, worked with Microsoft to integrate its EKG technology into Windows-based computer platforms. In 2010, Midmark collaborated with Mortara Instrument, Inc., enabling them to expand their range of EKG-related products within Canada and the United States.

IQEKG is one of many devices comprising Midmark Medical's IQ Digital Diagnostics System, a collection of software tools and digital diagnostic machines designed to enable medical professionals to more easily capture, review, and interpret patient information.
The history of the Burdick Company is deeply intertwined with that of Quinton Cardiology Systems, Cardiac Science, Inc., and Cardiac Science Corp. Burdick, first formed in 1913 by F.A. Anderson and F.F. Burdick as the Burdick Company, is currently a brand of Cardiac Science Corp. The Burdick Company produced EKG machines much favored by doctors at the time, and was known as a leader in the electrocardiograph technology industry. Quinton Cardiology Systems was founded in 1953 when Dr. Robert Bruce collaborated with Wayne Quinton to jumpstart the process of contemporary cardiac stress testing. Bruce and Quinton worked together to pin down a method of repeatedly measuring an elevated heart rate by means of cardiac testing with consistent results. In pursuit of this goal, Quinton devised the world's first mechanical treadmill. The Burdick Company was acquired by Quinton Cardiology Systems in 2001, preceding a 2005 merger with Cardiac Science, Inc. Cardiac Science, Inc. was founded in 1991 to create rhythm-analysis software that was FDA-approved. After Quinton merged with Cardiac, the company's title changed to its current name, Cardiac Science Corp. The company now serves as a haven for four of the biggest names in the cardiac technology business, including Powerheart, HeartCentrix, Quinton, and Burdick.
The seed that became Cardioline was planted in the late 1950s when an Italian mass tape recorder production company called Magnetofoni Castelli, chose to enter the medical industry. In 1962, Magnetofoni Castelli evolved into Elettronica Trentina, an organization that developed, industrialized, and produced EKG recorders. Elettronica Trentina served only as a manufacturer and supplier of original equipment for 27 years, at which point the company began actively marketing and selling EKG devices under the name Cardiette. In 1992 and 1993 respectively, branches of Elettronica Trentina were opened in Spain and Germany. Ten years later, the company acquired H&C Medical Devices and changed its name to et medical devices spA. In February of 2005, et medical devices spA incorporated the company Remco Italia Cardioline, turning itself into a cardiological industry leader. Cardioline's two main brands of equipment are the self-titled Cardioline and the Cardiette. Today, Cardioline's main base of operations is in Cavareno, Italy, but the company is constantly partnering with companies around the world, including Ortivus AB of Sweden. CardiolineUS is the North American branch of Cardioline, dispensing high quality cardiovascular diagnostic devices throughout the country. CardionlineUS offers a series of EKG machines, many with LCD screens and Bluetooth compatibility.
The first vestiges of Datex Ohmeda EKG machines can be traced back to the start of GE Healthcare in 1893. GE Healthcare was first known as Victor Electric Co., a small company that produced dental engines, beer pumps, and X-ray machines. In 1926, General Electric acquired Victor Electric Co. along with a host of other companies, and formed General Electric X-ray Corporation. As electro-medical monitoring equipment became increasingly popular in hospitals, GE eschewed X-ray production to begin focusing on this aspect of the industry and changed its name to GE Medical Systems. The company acquired Imatron, Inc., a business producing Electron beam tomography scanner technology for cardiac imaging applications, in 2001. In 2003, GE Medical Systems acquired Datex-Ohmeda, at the time a division of a company called Instrumentarium, itself a producer, manufacturer, and supplier of mechanical ventilators and anesthesia machines since 1977. After an extended series of mergers and name changes, GE Healthcare emerged. Today GE Healthcare has grown into an international company based in Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom. The subsidiary of GE Healthcare that deals with healthcare technologies such as EKG is known as GE Healthcare Clinical Systems.
Dr. Lee Co, Ltd. is a Korean company founded by Dr. Sang Yong Lee, a hospital director and family medical specialist, in 1990. Dr. Lee Co, Ltd. specializes in the development, manufacture, and market of instruments that record biomedical measurements. Since the company's inception, it has produced four separate electrocardiograph devices with the ability to detect abnormal cardiac responses. Marketing of these machines began in 1994, and Dr. Lee Co, Ltd.'s research and development team has since enabled over three million dollars' worth of medical equipment to be sold in one year's time. Dr. Lee's EKG machines are purposely designed to be high quality, but require little maintenance.

General Electric's place in the medical industry was cemented by its purchase of Victor Electric Co. in 1926. After acquiring many other small companies, General Electric formed a division called the General Electric X-ray Corporation. The organization originally focused on X-ray production, but soon refocused its attention on electro-medical monitoring equipment, which was becoming ever more popular in hospitals at the time. At this point, the General Electric X-ray Corporation changed its name to GE Medical Systems to better reflect its new product interest, and quickly began acquiring more companies in line with its goals. In 2001, GE Medical Systems bought Imatron, Inc., a producer of Electron beam tomography scanner technology for cardiac imaging applications. Two years later, GE Medical Systems purchased a division of Instrumentarium, a producer, manufacturer, and supplier of mechanical ventilators and anesthesia machines, called Datex-Ohmeda. Following these two large acquisitions, GE Medical Systems underwent a long list of mergers and company name changes to become known as GE Healthcare. Today GE Healthcare is headquartered in Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom, with offices all over the world. GE Healthcare Clinical Systems is the division of GE Healthcare that produces EKG technology.
The history of the Hewlett Packard line of EKGs is also the history of the medical industry behemoth Philips. Philips was founded in 1891 as Philips & Co. by Anton and Gerard Philips. Its name soon changed to Royal Philips, and the company spread from the Netherlands to Europe and the United States by the mid-1930s. Philips bought a handful of major medical companies in the years spanning 1998 to 2001, including Marconi Medical Systems, Agilent Technologies Healthcare Solutions Group, ATL Ultrasound, and ADAC Laboratories, doubling the size of its Medical Systems division. Shortly thereafter, Philips bought Hewlett Packard's medical business branch, as well as its line of EKG machines. Philips became the second largest communications systems and picture archiving supplier worldwide when it acquired Stentor Inc. in 2005. Philips purchased a groundbreaking Brazilian X-ray manufacturer, VMI-Sistemas Medicos, in 2007 in order to expand its products to a Latin American audience. In 2008, Philips took a major step in further cementing its high position on the medical technology industry totem pole when it purchased TOMCAT Systems Ltd., a company from Northern Ireland that produced software tools providing medical professionals novel ways with which to view data collected from cardiac patients.
David W. Mortara, PhD established Mortara Instrument in 1982. The company's philosophy revolves around creating simple, affordable products that fill a market need. Mortara Instrument has partnered with many big industry names to uphold these guiding principles, including Midmark.

The establishment of Philips as a medical mainstay harkens back to 1891, when Anton and Gerard Philips founded Philips & Co. in the Netherlands. In 1918, Royal Philips produced a medical X-ray tube. The company's operations had spread to the United States and Europe by 1933. When Philips acquired a host of medical companies between 1998 and 2001, including ATL Ultrasound, ADAC Laboratories, Agilent Technologies Healthcare Solutions Group, and Marconi Medical Systems, its Medical Systems division doubled. Philips also acquired the medical business branch of Hewlett Packard, including its line of EKG machines, around this time. A series of further acquisitions followed, including but not limited to that of Stentor Inc. in 2005. This incorporation made Philips the second biggest picture archiving and communications systems supplier in the world. When Philips acquired VMI-Sistemas Medicos, a pioneering Brazilian X-ray manufacturer, in 2007, the company found itself in a position to increase its diagnostic imaging offerings in Latin America. Philips now sells medical products in emerging markets like Africa and Latin America, as well as in Asia. In 2008, Philips incorporated TOMCAT Systems Ltd., a Northern Ireland company providing software tools dealing with the data collection from cardiac patients and its presentation to medical professionals.
QRS Diagnostic was founded in 1995. The company designs and develops cost-efficient medical devices based on software. These devices are then included in the production of USB modules and computer cards, reducing their overall price from one-fourth to one-half as much as medical devices that do not utilize this approach. Along with continued innovation in the EKG realm, QRS Diagnostic recently produced a USB drive that allows devices like their EKG machine to connect to USB ports on certain computers. The company currently has four patents relating to the medical device design of Computer Cards. QRS Diagnostic devices are purposely created to be lightweight and portable so that nurses and doctors can transport them easily in lab coat pockets for a faster, hassle-free diagnosis. Since QRS machines are based on software, they are easy and inexpensive to upgrade. They also allow medical professionals to work entirely from a single PDA or computer as opposed to a cluttered collection of different diagnostic machines for various procedures. QRS Diagnostic's brand of EKG machine, called the Universal EKG, is a portable device with 12 channels and the ability to interface with a PC. QRS Diagnostic has its headquarters in Plymouth, Minnesota.
