Sky Labs

Developing a cardio tracker to identify arrhythmia, which is difficult to diagnose

Sky Labs is developing a ring-type cardio tracker, CART, to diagnose and monitor cardiovascular diseases such as arrhythmia, heart failure and hypertension without any user intervention. With CART, patients can live a healthy life with a healthy heart.

Sky Labs is developing CART, a ring-type cardio tracker, to identify atrial fibrillation, which is difficult to diagnose even in a hospital. Clinical studies show that CART has greater than 98% accuracy in detecting atrial fibrillation. Sky Labs is expanding the diagnosis and measurement features of CART to cover the diagnosis of heart failure and sleep apnoea and is expanding into the measurement of cuff-less blood pressure.
