Reflex syncope, also named neurally mediated syncope is, by far, the most common cause of syncope. The study of patients with syncope is often challenging, once high-risk causes of syncope (such as aortic stenosis or malignant arrhythmias) have been ruled out.

Holter systems can be applied only 24–48 h ordinarily, and sometimes this time is not enough to establish a definite diagnosis. In case longer monitoring were needed, implantable monitors, such as Reveal® device, might be used, but physicians have to take into account that it is an invasive procedure, which may entail discomfort and other complications.

A new generation patented wireless remote monitoring platform, Nuubo's dynamic ECG (nECG Platform), which consists of a non-invasive and single-lead dynamic ECG system that incorporates biomedical e-textile technology may help to establish the diagnosis in patients with syncope by enabling a long non-invasive comfortable monitoring, reducing the procedure to the simple act of wearing an nECG shirt.
