Preventicus Heartbeats detects atrial fibrillation with an overall accuracy of 96% according to the studies conducted. The sensitivity (correct positive rate) is approx. 92%. The sensitivity indicates the probability with which atrial fibrillation is detected as such. In parallel, the specificity (true-negative rate) indicates the proportion of users not affected by atrial fibrillation for whom the result is correctly displayed with a green traffic light. The specificity of Preventicus Heartbeats is 99%. Atrial fibrillation can occur sporadically; if it is not present at the moment of measurement, it cannot be detected by Preventicus Heartbeats. It cannot be ruled out that existing diseases (such as diabetes, vascular diseases or the condition after cardiovascular operations), medications affecting the pulse rate or pacemakers may falsify the accuracy of Preventicus Heartbeats.
