Our offer includes all components
State-of-the-art technology: the wireless, full 3-channel mini ECG with the waterproof biosensor (patch), analysis software and advanced AI algorithms.
The ritmo recorder continuously records your heart rhythm – if desired, up to 12 days at a time. Three different channels are used (3-channel ECG). Each channel independently records your heart rhythm. Thus, the recording provides a high degree of certainty that all heart signals can be measured correctly and continuously.
Each of our three recording channels measures your heart rhythm at 200 hertz per second. In total, this results in 600 data points per second, which we can evaluate in a very short time with a sensitivity and specificity > 90% using our novel software that works with artificial intelligence. For a 72-hour ECG, we are talking about over 155 million data points.
Despite this top performance, our device is designed so small that you can wear it as comfortably as possible without any restrictions.
The ritmo III is a medical device approved in the EU according to Directive 93/42/EEC.
The EU approval according to the new regulation MDR 2017/745 as well as the approval for the USA (FDA/510k) are currently being processed.
Our electrode patch is specially manufactured for the ritmo and suitable for long-term ECG recordings. It complies with the prescribed standards regarding biocompatibility according to ISO 10993 and is latex-free as well as certified as a medical device.
The electrode carrier is a latex-free polyethlene foam and the electrode gel is a good conductive sold gel. The electrode is designed to ensure long recording times.
Software and hardware are CE certified according to MDD II a.
Artificial intelligence is the umbrella term for applications in which machines perform human-like intelligence tasks such as learning, judgment and problem solving. Machine learning (ML) technology – a subfield of artificial intelligence – teaches computers to learn from data and experience and to perform tasks ever more effectively. The ritmo’s artificial intelligence quickly and accurately evaluates the large amounts of data from a long-term ECG using ML, and is also certified as a medical device and approved throughout the EU.
Artificial intelligence is revolutionizing risk detection faster than ever before: our machine learning algorithm based on real data, validated by medical professionals, makes it possible.
The basis for the development of this software is our experience from many thousands of examinations, which we have collected as physicians over more than two decades. Together with our software engineers, we have used this treasure trove of data to develop a solution that will fundamentally improve preventive diagnostics, and not only in Germany.
As a full-fledged 3-channel ECG, the ritmo records the ECG at 200 hertz per channel, resulting in 600 data points per second and a very accurate picture of the heartbeat and heart rhythm. A 72-hour long-term ECG thus comprises more than 62 million data points, which can be evaluated within a few minutes thanks to artificial intelligence – better and faster than any human eye could do.
The portal is the system environment with which you can simplify and optimize your processes around long-term ECG diagnostics. Here you manage the Mini-EKG ritmo devices, track the examinations and receive our medically validated findings. All strictly in accordance with DSGVO and the highest security standards. With our user-friendly and intuitively understandable solution, we simplify and accelerate all processes in your practice.
The dpv analytics portal is the system environment with which you, as a physician, can simplify and optimize your cardiac care processes. You use our user-friendly hardware or our user-friendly ritmo for recording the ECG and our portal for accessing the results of our physician-validated analyses. All processes in the portal run strictly according to DSGVO and the highest security standards.
As a partner of dpv-analytics, you and your employees receive secure access to our portal. You can order your access by phone, in writing or via the form on our website. In addition, you will receive the starter package with our mini ECG devices.
In our portal you manage your Mini-EKG ritmo devices, you track the examinations and receive our findings. Our informative dashboard offers you all recordings, recording results and findings at a glance.
In detail, you can book ECG analyses for your patients, initialize and personalize the mini ECG. You can monitor the recording period and, once the recording is complete, transfer the data to our powerful evaluation systems with a one-click solution.
The recordings are automatically transferred to our AI and statistics modules to immediately identify arrhythmias and disease patterns in the recording.
From this moment on, our physicians are involved in the examination via a messaging system: they promptly validate the AI results, explain the outcome in writing, and formulate conclusions for further treatment of the patient.
Subsequently, the findings, notes and reports are automatically transferred to the portal and can be used by you, as the patient’s confidant, for discussions and the development of individual treatment plans.
Our ritmo system is a user-friendly and intuitively understandable solution for you that efficiently supports your daily practice routine.
- Accessible on all major browsers
- responsive solution
- Can be combined with desktop app for Windows and Mac for greater security and ease of use
- Windows from version Windows 7
- Internet access with at least 50 Mbit download and 25 Mbit upload required
- Interfaces to common patient management systems via xDT interface
Validated by our cardiologists
The intelligent evaluation by our AI is verified and validated by our cardiologists. All results are finally made available to you in a detailed findings folder. The report shows you the anonymized patient data as well as the basic data such as admission duration and recorded heartbeats.
You will also receive detailed information on all relevant ECG parameters, so that you are well prepared for the discussion with your patient. This includes information on atrial fibrillation, heart rate, heart rate average, sinus rhythm, bradycardia, AV block, pauses, heart rate variability, tachycardia, supraventricular and ventricular extrasystoles. Thus, you will receive a complete clinical report within 5 business days after upload. Also available within 24 / 48 hours upon request.
In order to create a holistic diagnosis, our patient app replaces the analog paper slip and provides the individual patient data digitally to the cardiologist making the diagnosis. With the ritmo patient app, patients document their daily activities, medication intake, complaints and emotional state in a digital diary during the cardiac screening.
Patients can report relevant information to their physician, supporting the evaluation of cardiac data in the context of the patient’s daily life. Symptoms such as heart stuttering or palpitations can be stored by the patient as an event in the app immediately when they occur.
This digital advantage allows us to provide cardiologists with this data without delay and to give the patient an initial impression of his vitality within the app. Reminder functions, for example to record current well-being, are also integrated. It is also possible to upload medical documents.
At the same time, the patient APP provides information about heart health, nutrition and health-promoting measures. Appointment management also helps with communication with the doctor.
