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)

Ratings and Reviews
I wanted to buy but didn’t realise it is subscription only
I tried the app and actually really liked it. It was exactly what I was looking for. However, when I went to buy I realised it was subscription only. I can’t afford a subscription at all, I’m living on borrowed funds as it is. So I can’t “buy” it. Such a shame.
30 mins to test unlocked version
Can you trial the app for free... apparently yes. You can test that the app works with your phone but it won't give you the results unless you unlock the app to test the full version, whether this involves signing up and giving all your details I don't know. I think the developers could be more straight forward with how and when you pay..you do feel you're being lured into paying, instead of honestly asked ...and why is iCloud needed?
I would pay willingly! But my confidence in the organisation is knocked by the marketing of the app.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback.
The free version offers a pre-test of 1 minute and provides an initial evaluation of the pre-test. In addition you can unlock the Prevneticus Heartbeats app once for 30 minutes to test the features of the full version. The full version allows a precise measurement of 1 or 5 minutes and produces an ECG-comparable PDF report.
It also provides access to optionally bookable Telecare Services to support you and your physician by providing medical-technical evaluations of your heartbeat recordings.
If you have further questions, please send us your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. We wish you much health.

Accurately diagnosed Atrial Fibrilation
Woke up with fast heartbeat that didn’t go away. I used this app and the report said it suspected Atrial Fibrillation. I ended up at hospital who diagnosed the same thing. I am now on beta blocker and blood thinners till I see cardiologist. Highly recommend this app prior to seeking medical help.
