Real Time Monitoring
Cardio is a revolutionary touchless technology, originally developed at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Labs (JPL)
"As a cardiologist with 23 years experience I truly believe that constant heart rate monitoring with touchless technology like this is the future. Constant monitoring with the Cardio.io sensor gives a far more accurate whole health picture than a once yearly physical."

Stress & Heart Rate Variability (HRV)
A strong healthy heart will speed up and slow down constantly to address environmental changes and stressors as they appear. Healthy hearts have a beat-to-beat variation and does not consistently beat at the same tempo. This variation between heartbeats is called Heart Rate Variability (HRV). The time between each consecutive heartbeat known as R-R interval is calculated in milliseconds.
Looking at HRV can provide a lot of information about an individual’s physical and mental health because it demonstrates the body’s ability to respond to stress and change, including mental health issues like anxiety and depression. Higher HRV generally means the body is better prepared and resilient when faced with adversities.
Occupancy and Motion
In addition to cardiac sensing Cardio provides real-time occupancy and vacancy monitoring and and can indicate when the person is no longer in the room or has wandered off and the space is unoccupied. This is useful when monitoring residents in a large living facility.
The sensor provides real-time movement information which can be used in sleep study assessment.
The smart phone app has the ability to view the long term history of heart rate, breath rate, stress (HRV) and motion of a person, across hours or days. This can provide insightful data and trending information of the cardiac function. Over time these trends can be used to indicate changes in the behavior of the parameters being measured.
