CardioSignal – Breakthrough apps to detect cardiac conditions to prevent stroke and heart attacks

Project description

Smartphone-based apps for the detection of cardiovascular diseases

Cardiovascular diseases cause millions of deaths annually. More than 80 % of these deaths are due to heart attack and stroke. The EU-funded CARDIOSIGNAL project will develop a suite of smartphone applications to detect heart conditions and save lives. The breakthrough technology will be able to identify atrial fibrillation (AFib), heart failure (HF) and coronary artery disease (CAD) without additional hardware. It will use a smartphone's gyroscope and accelerometer to measure heart activity by placing the smartphone on the user's chest for 60 seconds. The data is analysed in the cloud and results in a diagnosis. The applications for AFib detection are completed and clinically proven. The current project involves the development of applications for HF and CAD, with regulatory approval and launches across the EU, US and China to follow.
