Abstract:
    Heart-AMP will be an automatic, cheap and portable device used to detect abnormality of heart and its possible causes (diseases) by recording heart beats and analyzing them through machine learning.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Heart diseases cause 30 to 40 percent of all deaths in Pakistan. Still a vast majority of hospitals & clinics do not have capacity for their treatment due to expensive equipment used and less experts available. Heart-AMP will be a cheap and automatic solution that we aim to deploy all over Pakistan.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Heart diseases can effect people of all ages. but old people(>45 years) & new born are more prone to them. We have 29.8 births/1000 population & people aged above 45 is almost 22 million. Heart-AMP will target all the healthcare facilities to ensure early detection and prevention of heart diseases.
How will the solution works
    Heart-AMP will diagnose heart diseases automatically by recording heart beats using a simple stethoscope. The recorded signals will be sent to our system which will segment the signal into various regions of heartbeats. Time and frequency domain features will be extracted from the beats and compared to a trained model of normal/abnormal heartbeats via machine learning techniques. If heartbeat is found abnormal, it will then be checked for possible diseases using algorithms that we will design.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Our competitors are ECG machines companies. Our solution is different in the sense that it is super cheap & automatic. ECG machines diagnosis relies on experts to study the long graphs produced by machines obtained by sensors at 10-12 parts of body. Heart-AMP requires one stethoscope signal & done.
