The Science

Clinical, research-grade Biometrics

Raw waveform data enables us do in-depth analysis of your health using powerful cloud-based algorithms.

High-definition heart beat

What makes us different?

Most wearables utilize a very basic heart rate monitor, counting only that a beat occurred. Our approach is different – instead of checking your pulse at all times, we check while you’re still, allowing us to capture high-fidelity, raw Photoplethysmography (PPG) waveforms. These waveforms are the same kind that physicians uses to evaluate the heart’s health. That’s why our device already is being utilized by doctors and clinicians around the world to monitor their patients.

Raw PPG: The source code to your health.

Our clinical-quality PPG sensors allows us to gather extremely precise heartbeat data. Biostrap captures over 2,000 heartbeats every 24 hours. Every single pulsewave is analyzed for 29 different parameters, then analyzed against all of your other heartbeats from the last 24 hours.

Clinical-quality Heart Analysis

The heart is your body’s most vital organ. That’s why monitoring it daily provides huge benefits to understanding your overall health. Biostrap utilizes a clinical-quality PPG sensor that allows us to gather and analyze extremely precise heartbeat data.

Continuous research

Biostrap har always ongoing research and focuses on utilizing its multi-device framework and cloud technology to facilitate groundbreaking innovations in healthcare. We currently works with clinics, hospitals, universities, pharmaceutical companies, insurance providers and other organizations in researching cardiology, oncology, sleep disorders and diseases spanning many other therapeutic areas.
