The Burdick EK-2 ECG, which once exhibited at The Smithsonian, will be featured in an upcoming episode on A&E’s Storage Wars. For those new to the reality show, bidders comb through storage lockers to unearth products, items and collectibles in hopes of finding and purchasing lost treasure. Of surprise, one bidder discovered the Burdick EK-2 (pictured here).
The Burdick EK-2 was introduced in 1956 and was heralded for its cutting-edge technology. It was promoted as the automatic EKG and offered the following benefits:
• It eliminated the inconveniences of chemicals, dark rooms, and batteries.
• Leads were marked automatically and selected at the turn of a dial.
• The heat-sensitive paper moved at a calibrated speed, and the heated stylus wrote directly on the paper.
• Timing was fully automatic.
