Cardisiography

Start now with a modern form of preventative cardiac care!

The revolution in Cardiac Care

Why Cardisiography?

Until now, a simple screening for heart disease was hardly possible or a risky procedure involving a lot of effort. Cardisiography is the first screening test that reliably detects heart diseases with the help of artificial intelligence. It makes an effective checkup of your heart possible - and it is simple, fast and precise.

An ECG or stress ECG is only of limited value in detecting circulatory disorders in the heart muscle (approx. 50% accuracy). Cardisiography indicates within a few minutes and with a very high accuracy* whether the heart is healthy!

Cardisiography is as easy to use as an ECG, but measures the heart muscle in three-dimensional space. The measured values are analyzed using a special computer algorithm involving artificial intelligence, and the result quickly shows whether the heart is healthy or, for example, a heart attack is imminent.

What is Cardisiography and

how does it work?

Why go for a heart screening?

33% of all male hearts and 20% of all female hearts do not work as they should.

Typical

Symptoms

  • Chest-pain
  • Nausea
  • Back pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Tiredness
  • Heartache

Causes &

Risk-factors

  • Arteriosclerosis
  • Cardiac arrhythmias
  • Unhealthy lifestyle, such as poor diet, obesity, lack of exercise, smoking.

A 5 minute heart Checkup that can save lives

Start now with a modern form of preventive heart care and get tested with the help of a Cardisiography. With our technology, heart diseases can be detected at an early stage and serious consequences, such as a heart attack, can be avoided. For many diseases, even simple, preventive treatment methods can help and prevent serious diseases from occurring in the first place.

The Cardisiography procedure

5 min

Preparations

A trained person briefly explains the Cardisiography method and performs preliminary diagnostic tests.

5 min

Measurement

During the measurement, 5 electrodes are attached to your body, similar to an ECG. You sit still and simply wait.

15 min

Results

Your parameters are entered into the Cardisiograph. In a few minutes, you will have your result, which the doctor will discuss with you.

A heart attack is life-threatening!

People who suffer a heart attack do not always feel symptoms right away. Women or diabetic patients report only minor symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, or shortness of breath. Female patients also often lack the typical symptoms, such as chest pain. Diabetic patients present a different problem. Here, a so-called "silent heart attack" can cause either no symptoms at all or atypical ones, such as frequent fatigue, malaise, listlessness, or simply a general feeling of weakness. This is why silent infarctions usually go unnoticed, even though they leave behind severe damage to the heart.

Typical signs for a heart-attack: 

  • Severe pain behind the sternum lasting longer than 5 minutes
  • Pain radiating from the chest to other parts of the body, such as the left arm (especially in men) or both arms, neck, jaw, abdomen, neck, or shoulder blades
  • Tightness in the chest (angina pectoris)
  • Pressure feeling on the chest
  • Pale face, cold sweat breaks out
  • Trouble breathing
  • Restless
  • Vomiting, nausea
  • Dizziness, possibly unconsciousness

If you notice any of these signs, call for medical help immediately and dial 112!

Start now with a modern form of heart-diseaese prevention and get yourself tested with Cardisiography. 

This way, heart diseases can be detected at an early stage and serious complications, such as a heart attack, can be avoided. For many diseases, even simple, preventive treatment methods can help.

What other patients say

I was glad that no surgical intervention was necessary....

During a routine examination, the Cardisiography showed an increased risk index. A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan at a cardiologist confirmed the suspicion of early-stage calcification in two arteries. Thankfully the Cardisiography detected the stenosis in time and a surgical intervention was not necessary. Only my medications had to be adjusted.


Saleem M. // Designer and Photographer 


I had typical symptoms:
Chest pain, shortness of breath and fatigue....

The Cardisiography led to the clear result that I should be examined further. It was found that two coronary arteries were blocked and almost occluded. These narrowings were treated with stents. This made it possible to react at an early stage and prevent a heart attack.


Viveka D. //  Retiree

That's why I go for regular cardiac checkups....

Despite sudden heart rhythm complaints, my family doctor could not detect any abnormalities with normal examination methods. However, a Cardisiography then showed that something was wrong with my heart. I continue to go regularly to my heart check - especially because I can integrate it easily and quickly into my everyday life.


Jason N.  //  Consultant and proud dad

Other examination methods are sometimes associated with high risks for the patient. Cardisiography allows for an effective heart checkup - very quickly and without risk! I am convinced by this method, especially because of the smart use of artificial intelligence.

Frequently Asked Questions

why go for a Cardisiography?

Regular, non-invasive methods are often not accurate enough to detect heart disease at an early stage. With Cardisiography, it is now possible to detect the earliest signs of heart disease and prevent dire consequences such as heart attacks. With the help of artificial intelligence, Cardisiograhy scans the heart for anomalies that other methods, such as the ECG, would not be able to detect. In fact, Cardisiography is more than 90% accurate in detecting heart disease. With an early diagnosis, even small lifestyle changes or medication can prevent catastrophic consequences. 

How is Cardisiography performaned?

The cardisiography takes about 15 minutes.
First, your healthcare provider will ask you a couple of questions about yourself and your health concerns. At the same time, some preliminary examinations, such as measuring your blood pressure, are done.
Following the anamnesis, electrodes similar to those used in a regular ECG are placed on your chest. Next, you have to sit still for approx. 4 minutes while the Cardisiograph scans your heart. - Done! Your healthcare provider removes the electrodes from your chest and discusses the results with you.

COVID 19 may lead to heart disease

Even comparatively mild courses of COVID-19 can leave damage to the hearts of those affected. More than 75% of the patients in a study in Frankfurt showed abnormalities in this area on closer examination. Of particular concern, the researchers found that these heart conditions were not dependent on other factors, such as existing pre-existing conditions or a particularly severe course of COVID-19. Most patients had reported only mild to moderate symptoms from the disease. The researchers see a need for further studies on long-term consequences of COVID-19.[1]

Chinese researchers also consider it useful to examine the heart of recovered patients for possible complications. Especially since there are no long-term studies in this area yet.[2]


Therefore, it seems advisable to clarify even mild sympthoms during a cardiological examination. This is especially important as heart problems are often hardly noticeable and those affected usually go to the doctor far too late.
