n ON THE COVER
Many smartwatches and fitness trackers can detect
the wearer's pulse rate using light sensors.
Researchers have now developed a novel software
algorithm to analyze pulse rate signals and infer the
presence of atrial fibrillation (AF) on one brand of
wearables. The algorithm operates during periods of
inactivity and uses a process that examines continuous
and overlapping episodes of pulse information
from the wearable device to analyze for an irregular
heart rhythm. To learn more about how the algorithm senses irregular
heart rhythms to indicate the presence of possible AF, read the article on
page 28.
