Preventicus® Heartbeats App – AF screening with best-in-class accuracy
Identify the hidden risk. Prevent stroke.
Atrial fibrillation (AF) often develops quietly, usually not causing any apparent symptoms. Irregularly occurring AF episodes can remain unnoticed for years. If untreated, AF increases the risk of stroke by about five times.1 One in four people will suffer from AF at some point in their lives. This becomes more likely at the age of 65+ and even at the age of 55+ if additional risk factors are present (such as high blood pressure, diabetes, previous cardiovascular events).2 Fortunately, early diagnosis and adequate treatment can save lives and prevent disabilities.
