Description

Take regular recordings of your heart rhythm. This can identify undetected cardiac rhythm disorders - primarily atrial fibrillation - and thereby help prevent strokes.

According to the American Heart Association, stroke is the second most common cause of death worldwide. On the other hand, clinical studies have proven that nine out of ten strokes are preventable. The main risk factors include undetected cardiac rhythm disorders, primarily atrial fibrillation.

Preventicus Heartbeats not only analyzes your pulse, but specifically your vital heart rhythm - simply and at any time using your smartphone camera without any accessory devices. The app is clinically validated and designed to detect irregular heartbeats (e.g. ectopic beats) and check for the presence of any absolute arrhythmia suspicious of atrial fibrillation. The app works with an accuracy nearly equivalent to that of an ECG tracing - as clinical studies have confirmed.

Measuring your heart rhythm regularly helps in prevention. Just as important as regular blood pressure measurements, Preventicus Heartbeats should therefore be your constant companion in situations occurring in life where heart rhythm disorders occur with a greater frequency and, if left undetected, can have fatal consequences in the face of risk factors like:
• High blood pressure
• Diabetes
• Age > 55 years in combination with risk factors
• Heart palpitations
• Previous arrhythmia(or atrial fibrillation)
• Previous heart attack
• Previous stroke
• Menopause

Preventicus Heartbeats lets you visualize your heart rhythm by recording it on a PDF report. That makes your heart rhythm analysis reproducible at any time for viewing by you or your doctor.
The intended use of this app is to detect indications of cardiac arrhythmias in non-clinical environments. This includes the following cardiac arrhythmias: evidence of absolute arrhythmia with suspicion of atrial fibrillation, detection of evidence of ectopic beats and determination of heart rate with evidence of bradycardia and tachycardia, without further diagnostic differentiation.
Under no circumstances should this app be used to make decisions in life-threatening situations.

You can also book optional Telecare Services to support you and your doctor. Working at a Telecare Center, medical technicians specialized in the cardiac rhythm analysis of pulse - related data offer you:
• A direct medical - technical evaluation of your recorded heartbeat data to rule out possible measurement errors and to verify rhythm disorders
• Detailed notes on potential rhythmic abnormalities to give to your doctor
• A summarizing Telecare Report, e.g.to pass on to your doctor

Version 1.6

We implemented one of the biggest wishes of our customers:
A new clinical study confirmed the accuracy of 95 percent in detecting atrial fibrillation within a one-minute measurement. Therefore we reduce the measuring time required for a precise measurement and obtaining a PDF report in the app to one minute.

Further optimizations:
• Improvement of the user interface

Version 1.5

On some smartphones, despite good measuring conditions, rejected recordings happened due to insufficient signal quality. Good signal quality is the basis for a reliable result of this clinically validated medical device. That’s why we have very high demands in this regard, which is not always easy with the variety of Android based smartphones. We have significantly optimized our signal quality assessment method. Rejected measurements, a good and quiet recording provided, are a thing of the past.
