Low-cost AI heart monitor developed by Cambridge start up

last modified Oct 08, 2018 01:23 PM

Dr Rameen Shakur, Prof Roberto Cipolla, and others from Cambridge Heartwear and the University of Cambridge have designed a low-cost heart and cardiovascular function monitor that uses AI to diagnose problems with heart rhythm.

The device is called Heartsense and can be comfortably worn by patients for early screening of atrial fibrillation (AF) and other heart arrthythmias. The monitor contains a multiple lead ECG, sensors for oxygen and temperature, and tracking device enclosed in a robust waterproof casing.

The data produced is more sensitive than that from current single lead wearable devices, and can be streamed in real time wirelessly to a cloud where adaptive AI algorithms will identify clinically relevant irregular and dangerous heart rhythms just as a physician would.
