The project, developed at a technical level in Cuatroochenta and which has a prototype ready for launch in 2020, makes it possible to detect arrhythmias in real time through a smart bracelet such as Garmin® or another wearable device.

Thanks to the linking of the mobile application and the user's device, the algorithm, by recording the wearer’s heart rhythm in real time, makes it possible to detect cases of atrial fibrillation, one of the most common arrhythmias and which can cause a stroke. This pathology is currently the leading cause of death among women, and the second most common cause among men.

The smartband monitors the patient 24 hours a day, using its own algorithms.

The app detects if there is a heart abnormality or possible atrial fibrillation (FA).

And alerts the user to consult with their doctor and undergo further tests.

The app stores the data and allows it to be shared with the user’s doctor or another user.

How does it works?

The Rithmi technology is based on a photoplethysmography (PPG) recording system, a method that measures pressure and volume changes in blood.

The data collected by the device generates a pulse wave for the heart, with which it can determine when each beat occurs.

Finally, the data monitored by the external device is transferred to a mobile and web application for monitoring with an alert system.

One of the critical points of the project was the development of an algorithm (validated by the Institute of Biomechanics of Valencia) capable of detecting possible arrhythmias in the heart, to allow the monitoring and follow-up of the user's health in their daily activity with an accuracy very close to the ambulatory ECG monitoring system.

The Rithmi algorithm, connected to Garmin® devices

Rithmi's algorithm analyses data received from an external device with optical heart rate sensors, such as Garmin® wearables.

Based on this data, Rithmi is able to detect atrial fibrillation (AF), the most common arrhythmia, and alert the user to seek treatment by a doctor.

This early detection and treatment can improve the chances of avoiding further medical complications.

In addition, Rithmi has an app which visually and safely displays and saves the recorded data, with the possibility of sharing it with a doctor.
