Intelligent ECG Sensing for cardiacarrhythmia detection
According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular disease is responsible for roughly one-third of all deaths worldwide each year, and based on the European Heart Network, this disease causes over 1.8 million premature deaths in EU annually, accounting for 37% of all deaths in EU.

The goal of this project is development of a wearable device capable of measuring ECG signals using only two active electrodes that has no direct contact with the patient’s skin. Furthermore, an Intelligent ECG sensing method recognizes the state of heartbeat, learns, and trains the model for detection of various cardiac arrhythmia.
We develop a system that is more sensitive and intelligent than currently available products usable by any person with limited healthcare training. This system is also portable for continuous health monitoring and provide healthcare to anybody, anytime, anywhere, thus it is anticipated that premature deaths from cardiovascular disease to drop significantly.
