How Microlife’s patented Afib technology works
Microlife’s Afib (Atrial Fibrillation) patented technology performs atrial fibrillation screening with the oscillometric method via easy blood pressure measurements. If atrial fibrillation is detected during blood pressure measurements, the Afib indicator is displayed, flashing at the end of the triple measurements.
Microlife Afib is recommended for screening or follow-up at home for patients with atrial fibrillation. Microlife Afib does not make a diagnosis, but provides important information for your Doctor, to investigate with ECG and diagnose atrial fibrillation.
Tested and approved to detect atrial fibrillation
Microlife Afib detects atrial fibrillation with high accuracy (sensitivity 97-100% - specificity 89%) as demonstrated in two recent comparative studies with ECG, conducted on a total of approximately 500 subjects, in the U.S. and Europe [1,2].
