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
• Age > 55 years in combination with risk factors
• Heart palpitations
• Previous arrhythmia(or atrial fibrillation)
• Previous heart attack
• Previous stroke
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
Free test version:
• One - minute quick test with heart rhythm analysis: abnormal or not
Full Version (IAP):
• Five - minute test with heart rhythm analysis: normal(green), suspicious (yellow) or absolute arrhythmia suspicious of atrial fibrillation (red)
• Enhanced recording time features an excellent accuracy of approx. 95 %
• One - minute quick test possible any time too
• Heart rhythm data can be displayed on a PDF report, reproducible at any time for viewing by user and/or doctors
• All data can be archived
• Optionally bookable Telecare Services provided by third - party suppliers

Ratings and Reviews
I’ve had this app for about a year and have found it incredibly reassuring and helpful. I have a family history of heart issues and I get a lot of chest discomfort from GERD so whenever I feel something funny in my chest my anxiety shoots up making the problem worse. This app has been a very helpful tool as a quick prescreening device. I’ve even used it with my Mom and sister-in-law. I like that it doesn’t require any additional attachments so I can check my heart quickly anywhere anytime I’m feeling concerned.

Thank you very much for your feedback. We are pleased that you rate our app positively.
Great for peace of mind!!
I had a scare with my heart back in June and I had multiple cardiac test done. All the test came back normal but I still have chest pain frequently. Having this app makes me feel better even tho I know it isn’t my heart causing the chest pains. I only gave it 4 stars because it lets you go through the whole 5 minute test just to tell you the signal wasn’t strong enough. It should stop when the signal is to weak instead of going through it all. You can see the signal strength but it moves so much it’s hard to tell if it’s going to be good enough or not. Overall I’m very pleased with the app I love the detailed report it gives you too.

We thank you for sharing your experience. We know that 5 minutes can be very long. Therefore, please use the 1min measurement of the full version. We have optimized our algorithm and introduced this measurement after many customers reported back to us that the 5min measurement is a hearus challenge.
In our clinical studies we were able to show that the 1min measurement is almost as meaningful as the 5min measurement. Your Preventicus Team
Finally see what I feel
Last few days I have been noticing extra beats or a flutter in my chest. Ran multiple reports with numerous irregular beats. I ran my wife’s report as a test to confirm her report as good. I got to the point where I could close my eyes and when I felt it happen I could look up and see it on the screen. Very interesting. I have not yet discussed it with my cardiologist but glad to have it documented to show him.
