AuraHeart™ Performance Characteristics
Updated: February 7, 2017
Performance characteristics of the AuraHeart heart rate app are listed below. Accuracy is affected by a number of factors. These performance characteristics are not guaranteed and are provided for informational purposes only. Performance may vary by user or session. These characteristics are developed through an in-house study of 480 comparisons across 164 individuals at rest with AuraHeart HR measurements sequentially compared to pulse rate measurements from a clinically-validated blood pressure cuff device.
Heart Rate Range†:
- 39-240 (bpm)
Heart Rate Accuracy*:
- Mean: 1.3 (bpm)
- SD: 3.4 (bpm)
- RMSD: 3.6 (bpm)
- Pearson: r=0.968 (P<0.0001)
† AuraHeart will not produce readings outside of this range. Do not attempt to use AuraHeart to produce a reading outside of this range. If you intend to measure heart rate outside of this range, AuraHeart is not suitable for your use.
* Mean = mean difference compared to reference, SD = standard deviation of difference, RMSD = root mean squared deviation, Pearson r = Pearson correlation coefficient between AuraHeart and reference.
