WHAT IS D-HEART

-Heart is the first smartphone ECG device that simple to use, clinically reliable, portable and affordable. It allows anyone to perform a hospital-level ECG in total autonomy and to send the results to the 24/7 tele-cardiology service or to your trusted doctor.


D-Heart allows you to track your heart health, to explain possible unclear symptoms or to monitor the efficacy of your medications.
With D-Heart you can become an engaged partner in the management of your health.
It’s your task to record an ECG whenever you have symptoms, to share it with your trusted physician and to establish a shared decision making process with your doctor.


Thanks to image-processing and artificial intelligence we guide you to the correct electrode's placement by showing your own chest picture with virtual marks placed where you should stick the electrodes.

About us

Company details

 
D-Heart biomedical start-up was founded in 2015 thanks to the work of Nicolò Briante and Niccolò Maurizi, at the time two young students in the interdisciplinary environment of the Almo Collegio Borromeo of Pavia. Maurizi is a young doctor researcher in cardiology at the University of Florence. When he was sixteen, Maurizi was hit by a myocardial infarction. He decided to became a doctor and transform his problem into an opportunity. Thanks to the help and business expertise of his roommate, Briante, they created D-Heart, the first smartphone ECG device that combines the usability required by the patient and reliability of the ECG wanted by the doctor.

What limited the diffusion of homecare ECG devices up to now, was that to obtain reliable information for the doctors, cumbersome and unfriendly devices had to be used. Particularly, challenging cable uncoiling and the placement of electrodes in specific points were the main challenges. D-Heart, thanks to its innovative yet easyproprietary technology, solves both these problems: the user can wind up all the cables at once, or one at a time, and in any order, with intuitive positioning given by the cable exit direction from the device.

D-Heart app also shows the patient’s own chest with electrodes placed to aid further simplicity and reliability. The result is to have a device as reliable as the one present in your doctor’s office always with you ready to be simply used. The user can rely on the 24/7 tele-cardiology service to get results quickly from our trusted cardiologists. The device comes in a protective case with a wireless charging station. Everything from the device, app and packaging is designed and share the same design principle that reflects the D-Heart brand: simplicity meets reliability.

D-Heart has won 9 competitions in various fields, from healthcare innovation awards to Start up competitions. As a matter of fact, players such as Vodafone Foundation (Think for Social competition March 2016), BNP Paribas Cardiff (Best Solution for healthcare insurances 2016), Berkeley University (Global Social Venture Competition 2017), Italian Society of Cardiology (Best Abstract 2017) have awarded and recognized the value of D Heart’s innovation.
