About the project

This project aims to create an advanced tool using photoplethysmographic (PPG) signals measured by smart devices (smartphone, smartwatch) for assessing health parameters and detecting a variety of cardiac arrhythmias, going beyond the current capabilities of smart devices that detect only one type of cardiac arrhythmia (atrial fibrillation). This tool should enhance the prevention and early detection of cardiac issues.


Why science?

I enjoy science because every day brings new challenges and provides me with the opportunity to continually learn.
