Researchers Are Seeking Your Input (Survey)

Posted by Mellanie at StopAfib.org on February 28,  2018  6:53pm EST

Researchers at the University of Rochester/Rochester Institute of Technology have developed a smartphone app for detecting atrial fibrillation. They have requested that we share their survey with you to give them feedback on the feasibility of making such an app and a service available to those with afib.


If you are interested in helping them with this survey, please go to this link (https://goo.gl/forms/LFPu9EVbymw701Ea2), watch the 1-minute video, and fill out the survey. It will be a year or two before the application and service will be ready to roll out, but this will help them understand if there is a need for it. 


For those who are interested, this is one of the early applications in the US of what is called "photoplethysmography", which is measuring micro-changes in the skin to detect changes in the heart. This app uses the face whereas Apple's watch (Apple Heart Study with Stanford, https://www.apple.com/watch/apple-heart-study/) uses sensors on the wrist.

    Valerielgado,

    I would love to share my thoughts and opinions with the researchers if they need so. I have also written articles on cheap essay service website as well that may serve helpful to the researchers.
