A stress test, also known as treadmill test or exercise test, is used to measure the health of the heart during physical activity. The test involves walking on a treadmill or a stationary bike that allows the healthcare professional to monitor patient's heart rhythm, breathing rate and blood pressure during the test through an ECG system. An ECG stress test can estimate if the person has any risk of having heart disease.


High cost of instruments used in ECG stress test and lack of experienced staff performing the test especially in underdeveloped countries is anticipated to impede the market share. For instance, the stress test machines can cost in the range of USD 4,000 to USD 9,000. Healthcare facilities with limited capital budgets find it difficult to deploy such systems. Moreover, the cost of stress tests for uninsured patients can go up to around USD 5,000.
