Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin

Charité is one of the largest university hospitals within Europe. It is the joint medical school for the Free University of Berlin and the Humboldt University of Berlin. Physicians and scientists perform research, cure diseases, and teach others at a top international level. Over half of German Nobel Prize winners in medicine and physiology come from Charité, including Emil von Behring, Robert Koch, and Paul Ehrlich. The university hospital is seen worldwide as a training center of excellence.

CardioSecur and Charité are working together on a prospective, non-randomized study. In this study, patients with arrhythmias receive CardioSecur Active to monitor their hearts on their own. The goal of this research project is to avoid electrophysiological examinations by using the portable ECG device CardioSecur Active, without losing diagnostic or therapeutic benefits.

German Jordanian University

German Jordanian University (GJU) in Amman is a public university in Jordan. Their practice-oriented teaching style is modelled after the German model of applied sciences. One-quarter of the GJU faculty come from Germany. During their five-year program, the students spend their fourth year in Germany. This year is divided so that the first semester is spent at a partner university, and the second semester is spent performing an internship at a German company.

CardioSecur supports GJU as a partner company. In addition to varied specialty areas for internships, we offer the best interns and students the possibility to write their bachelor thesis with us.  Within the scope of their specialty, we support the students in independently carrying out research.

Prof. Reifart & Partner

Dr. Reifart has been listed as one of the best cardiologists in Germany by Focus’ Physician List 2017. The Cardiac Institute of Professor Reifart & Partners has been in Bad Soden am Taunus and Hofheim am Taunus since 1997. They perform check-ups for prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of all diseases of the cardiovascular system. Additionally, their focus is on interventional cardiology and angiology for treatment of acute heart attacks and re-opening of coronary arteries that have been occluded for years.

The scientific study supported by CardioSecur in cooperation with Professor Reifart & Partners has the goal of evaluating the equivalency of a vector ECG with 4 electrodes (CardioSecur) and a standard ECG with 10 electrodes (Schiller AT-2) under stress. 14 electrodes are therefore attached to the patient’s chest: 10 for the standard ECG and 4 for the CardioSecur ECG.

The focus is on patients with known or presumed coronary artery disease (CAD). The study will provide a descriptive statement regarding various standard parameters of ECG analysis such as rhythm, rate, axis, and AV conduction. The primary objective is to examine the sensitivity of ST-segment changes 70 ms after the so-called J-point.

The study began in July 2017 and will include 500 subjects.


Study title: Comparison of a vector-generated ECG and the standard leads during a bicycle ergometer examination in patients with suspected stenosing CAD.

Lead investigator: Professor Dr. Nicolaus Reifart

Other examiners: Doctoral candidate Jörg Alexander Langanke and Jörg Reifart
