Reducing Heart Attack Deaths with IoT and AI

HTEC engineering team in collaboration with the leading electrophysiologists and cardiologists has developed a complete telehealth solution which enables simple and comfortable ECG recording and analysis, combined with the quick, automatic and precise diagnosis of cardiac arrhythmias.

The Challenge

A heart should always come first.

There has been a substantial increase in the number of people with cardiac diseases and heart conditions in the past couple of decades, and the capacities of medical institutions and doctors have not been growing at the same rate. The availability of medical staff and the conflicting schedules of patients and their physicians, make such appointments complicated and in favor of other obligations, they are often postponed. Neglect of the problem rarely leads to resolution, so one’s heart should always come first.

The Capacity

HUMEDS innovative telehealth technology, which allows comfortable and straightforward ECG recording and analysis, at any time and any place, enables quick, automatic and precise diagnosis of cardiac arrhythmias.

A team of HTEC engineers in cooperation with a group of leading electrophysiologists and cardiologists intensively collaborated for more than two years on the project, with the aim of developing this revolutionary technological solution.

HTEC team has developed the complete solution, Humeds Cardia-3, consisting of medical hardware device and software platform. The software platform includes both web and mobile applications. The dedicated NFC enabled mobile application allows for real-time ECG signal acquisition, monitoring, and sharing, while web and tablet applications offer complete functionality of the ECG diagnostic tool in addition to admin panel and account management sections.

With this device, the user can easily capture high-quality ECG signals, which are stored in the cloud and automatically downloaded to a doctor’s mobile or tablet device. A set of advanced built-in algorithms enables automatic arrhythmia classification, whenever they occur. The complete diagnostic system covers 95% of cardiac arrhythmias, with 99,6% precision, based on the MIT database.

High-quality ECG signal, achieved by using only dry electrodes, without the need for prior skin preparation, along with automatic arrhythmia classification makes this solution unique on the market. All of this helps doctors speed up the diagnosis so that patients can get feedback on their smartphones immediately. This way, doctors can respond quickly, which is most often essential for saving patients’ lives or is extremely relevant to their speedy recovery.

The Success

Telemedicine is improving people’s lives every day. The HUMEDS system provides a complete solution for cardiac patients telemonitoring and diagnostics.

HUMEDS telehealth solutions contribute to solving the problems of globally increasing costs of health care, shortage of medical experts, inadequate patient care, the ever-increasing need for remote monitoring, and the general lack of time one can dedicate to doctor’s appointments and consultations. The convenience and accuracy, joined with its user-friendly interface, make Humeds Cardia-3 practical for both home and institutional use, making tracking and diagnosis more comfortable for both the patient and the physician.
