Certified app for detecting atrial fibrillation and other arrhythmias
FibriCheck is a medically certified app (CE-class IIa and FDA-cleared) capable of detecting atrial fibrillation and other heart rhythm disorders, thereby preventing strokes. FibriCheck is leveraging mobile technologies for a better health. FibriCheck uses the built-in photoplethysmographic (PPG) sensors commonly found in smartphones and smartwatches to measure the rhythm of the user’s heartbeat. Employing medically-certified algorithms together with an artificially intelligent deep neural network, FibriCheck detects the presence of atrial fibrillation and other potentially fatal cardiac arrhythmias. It is as good as a 1-lead ECG and 96,5% accurate compared with a 12-lead ECG. By decentralizing the diagnostic process, FibriCheck is paving the way for broader access to effective care for individuals while reducing the total cost of healthcare for governments and insurers, thus helping to make Health 2.0 a reality for communities around the globe. FibriCheck is commercially available since May 2017, prescribed by over 1,200 doctors, used by over 110,000 people and reimbursed by selected healthcare funds.
