Using a combination of seismocardiogram (SCG) and electrocardiogram (ECG), HeartForce conducts an analysis on the repeatability of systolic time intervals (STIs) in healthy subjects via two experiments.
Using rest and exercise seismocardiography, HeartForce presents a non-invasive methodology in helping to identify coronary artery disease (CAD), and combating the most common cause of death worldwide. Discover how the fast, easy and inexpensive SCG examination compares to more traditional CAD assessments of exercise electrocardiography (ECG), coronary angiography and coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA).
Heart force attended the Computing in Cardiology Conference 2019, Singapore, Singapore and presented the results of study “Estimation of Cardiac Time Intervals from the Mechanical Activity of the Heart Using Machine Learning.”
In clinical examinations, HeartForce investigated the reliability of cardiac time intervals and beat-to-beat extraction of PCG, ICG and SCG signals in relation to the clinical gold standard of multimodal echocardiography (Doppler, TDI, and M-mode). The three non-invasive methodologies possess the potential to be embedded in wearable devices (ICG, SCG, and PCG), and detect clinically relevant… Continue reading HeartForce Investigates Use of PCG, ICG and SCG in Wearable Devices to Detect Cardiac Time Intervals
To investigate the effects of the coronary artery disease on the morphology of the SCG and GCG waveforms, HeartForce designed and conducted an investigational study in the University Hospital Zürich, Switzerland. One hundred and fifty patients participated in this study, who were suspected of having coronary artery disease and were referred to the hospital for… Continue reading HeartForce Investigational Study – University Hospital of Zürich, Switzerland
