Detection of heart rhythm disorders

Afi's first clinical application is in cardiology where it's used as a more user-friendly and reliable substitute for traditional Holter monitoring

The trouble with traditional monitoring

Heart rhythm disorders can be diagnosed by 24-hour Holter monitoring. Atrial fibrillation, however, sometimes occurs once a week or even less. The chances of missing atrial fibrillation are therefore high while having devastating consequences like a cerebral infarct. Traditional devices are not user-friendly for patients as several electrode stickers and wires have to be connected to the skin making daily activities difficult. Algorithms lack accuracy resulting in a high workload for ECG analysts and a limited number of weekly cardiac monitorings.

Afi fixes this with innovation

Praxa Sense designed Afi, which makes heart rhythm monitoring possible for up to 30 days. It's a user-friendly device with only one sticker and no cables involved. Therefore, it's more convenient for a patient and provides the ability to shower and sleep without any worry.

Praxa Sense considers the input of clinical professionals in all our R&D activities. With a machine-learning algorithm, Afi can detect atrial fibrillation with high accuracy. This will be validated in a clinical trial. With automatic ECG analysis, we can unburden ECG analysts, help monitor many more patients, and save more lives.




How does Afi work?

Step 1

Cardiologist prescibes Afi and gives instructions to the patient who takes Afi home for monitoring up to 30 days.

Step 2

Afi senses ECG, heart rate, oxygen saturation, respiratory rate, movement and temperature of patient.

Step 3

Robust machine learning algorithms process the data and detect heart rhythm disorders. Clinical analysts verify its findings in our user dashboard.

Step 4

Our dashboard generates a report with the findings. This report will be sent to the cardiologist for diagnostic evaluation.
