AI IN MEDICAL DEVICES

Medtech is a field where AI is bringing considerable progress and a direct impact on people's life expectancy and quality of life.
The data generated by Medical devices can open doors to new therapies or insights.

Kantify's journey in medical devices started with our breakthrough on Atrial Fibrillation.

KANTIFY'S BREAKTHROUGH RESEARCH ON ATRIAL FIBRILLATION

Whether we know it or not, we all know someone who is affected by Atrial Fibrillation (also known as AF or AFib). With 33M patients estimated in Europe and North America, Atrial Fibrillation is a growing disease with a high health and societal impact: leading to blood clots, kidney problems, heart failure, and kidney failure dementia.

In collaboration with a renowned cardiologist and the AI laboratory of the Université Libre de Bruxelles, Kantify has discovered a breakthrough algorithm to diagnose and predict Atrial Fibrillation. The Kantify AI-based model can both detect and predict Atrial Fibrillation based on ECG (Electrocardiogram) data.

This model has not only a higher AUC (Area Under the Curve) than existing models in terms of Atrial Fibrillation diagnosis, but it can also predict when an Atrial Fibrillation episode will happen. This prediction capability is what makes Kantify’s discovery unique. Therefore, this breakthrough has been accepted and published by international scientific journals.

HOW WE COLLABORATE WITH MEDICAL DEVICE BUSINESSES

We work with Medtech companies and research centers that wish to :

  • Tackle specific optimization or prediction problems : we bring AI expertise to companies that are developing a new product, or a new feature, or a new software. We develop the AI component of this new product, in close collaboration with our partners.

  • Understand the possible use cases for their data: we help companies understand if their data can be used, for which use cases. We usually include an analysis of the possible regulatory approval constraints, and the technical consequences in terms of AI model validation.
