Driven by our mission to save lives by improving the diagnostic value of the ECG, Peacs is investing in research activities. We want to understand the origin of the ECG better, become the best in what we develop and deliver. We truly believe in collaboration with thought leaders in our domain. We are grateful for the financial support we obtain from the Netherlands, the European Union and the support our research partners receive from their national organisations. Developing new concepts is a process which often requires a long term vision, trust in your partners and determination to get the job done.

Our current research projects are:

  • Alvale: Together with our partners (Schiller AG, Hochschule Lucerne, IADI at Nancy and the University Hospital of Basel) we are developing new technology to support the cardiologist improved classification of ventricular arrhythmias. The project is co-funded by the European Union’s Eurostars program (project no. E9711). The Eurostars-Alvale project started in the beginning of 2016 and is expected to be finalized by the end of 2018.
  • QRS-VISION: We participate in the research project QRS-VISION together with UMC Utrecht and the Dutch Heart Foundation. The project aims to develop novel advanced ECG diagnostic techniques to assess the disease state, progression and cardiac risk of inherited cardiomyopathies that can lead to heart failure, ventricular arrhythmias (VA) and sudden cardiac death.
  •  Ongoing research: Next to the formal EU granted research project, Peacs participates in research on improving the cardiac ECG diagnostics. A list of publications can be found here.
