Heart Sentinel srl è una start up innovativa con sede a Parma che si occupa dello sviluppo di algoritmi dedicati alla prevenzione in ambito cardiologico.
Heart Sentinel srl was founded in 2015 by Nicola Gaibazzi and Claudio Reverberi, two recognized Italian cardiologists, authors of some of the most popular scientific publications on cardiovascular diseases.
The first algorithm created by the two doctors – Heart Sentinel, from the company name – is able to detect a cardiac arrest and immediately send messages to predefined numbers providing, by geo-location, the exact position to rescuers and thus promoting a quick and targeted assistance.
In 2016, due to the interest aroused in science, the project attracts the attention of managers and private investors that joined the team: Matteo Mille, manager in multinational companies with offices in Europe and Asia, and Andrea Nasturzio, General Manager with consolidated knowledge of the start-up world gained through important professional experiences in Italy and abroad.
In the first months of 2017, Nicola Gaibazzi and Claudio Reverberi completed the study of a new algorithm: Ritmia. The new algorithm is able to proactively detect the presence of atrial fibrillation, the most common cardiac arrhythmia, an unrecognized cause of cerebral strokes due to the practical impossibility of monitoring long-term cardiac rhythm using non-dedicated devices. Ritmia, as Heart Sentinel, differently from others, can rely on easily wearable and inexpensive devices, like normal sports heart rate monitors.
Both algorithms, Heart Sentinel and Ritmia are patent pending. The patent application was filed in Italy and extended to 148 countries.
