AFib is an irregular heart rhythm typically affecting people over 65 that can lead to serious complications such as strokes, heart failure, and dementia. The CDC estimates that 12M people in the US alone will have AFib by 2030. Although AFib is extremely prevalent, there are surprisingly few products readily available for detecting and monitoring the disease. My Heart Lab is a research study app that allows users to detect and monitor for possible AFib and share comprehensive reports with their doctors — enabling users and doctors to monitor heart rhythms actively & passively. It is the world’s first watch app to combine PPG technology for continuous AFib monitoring with a verification ECG and the world’s first to feature an AFib burden assessment. My Heart Lab is a complete ecosystem that includes a watch & phone app and comprehensive reports for clinicians. My Heart Lab was designed and developed by Samsung Research America’s Digital Health Lab in close collaboration with cardiologists at UCSF. Working alongside leading cardiologists, we were able to uncover valuable insights and address constraints and criteria that would make the product successful in both consumer and healthcare environments to ultimately aid in clinical decision-making.
