Dr. S. Howard Wittels and his son, Tiger Tech CEO Harrison Wittels, developed a mini-EKG armband. It has been used by the military for years to monitor soldiers and track their health.

COVID-19 causes inflammation to the heart and blood vessels, so the Wittels and their team realized they could update their device with light sensors that can detect that inflammation.

Tiger Tech COVID Plus armband is completely noninvasive and it takes less than 3 to 5 minutes to render a decision. Device checks for abnormalities in a participant’s biometrics, along with other COVID-19 complications. But it’s not a simple task – COVID Plus uses hundreds of unique biomarkers to find patterns associated with COVID-19.
