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 %

Ratings and Reviews
Very helpful app
As with any app claims, I was sceptical, but I started having what I describe as chest flutters and this app accurately recorded it. I sent a copy to both my GP and cardiologist to show what I’ve been experiencing. As a result, a 2 week monitor was ordered. I didn’t rate as five stars because I think the app needs more choices or an additional field regarding activity at the time of symptoms e.g. exercising, eating, resting, etc. As someone not as familiar with different types of irregular beats, it would be nice to have a more detailed description of what each type of beat means.

Thank you for your feedback and proposals. We constantly strive to develop our product. We are always open to suggestions. Please note: There is already a text field for comments, which you can fill in when creating the report. We wish you good health. Your sincerely, Preventicus
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.
Has worked great up until today
Love this app as it gives me piece of mind that I’m in a normal sinus rhythm; however, not sure if there’s an issue with their server, but all day it has given me an error that it’s having problems communicating with the server. It’s not my internet and I tried it at work as well. Hope it gets fixed soon!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback. We had a short server failure. We were able to identify and correct the error already. The app should work properly again. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. Your Preventicus team
