Clinical studies have shown that the Cardisio algorithm can distinguish coronary heart disease from a heart that is not diseased with an accuracy of more than 95 percent.
Only in fewer than 5 percent of the cases on which the clinical study was based did the Cardisio algorithm not recognize a coronary heart disease even though it was present.
In fewer than 10 percent of all the cases analyzed in the study, the Cardisio algorithm classified a negative test as positive. This means that in these cases a coronary heart disease was indicated even though it was not present.
This shows that the results determined by the Cardisio app do under no circumstances replace a personal diagnosis, care, consultation or treatment by a physician or medically trained personnel. The results merely serve for informational purposes and are intended to provide the user with some assistance. However, the Cardisio app neither serves for decision-making in acute circumstances nor for real-time monitoring of vital functions. Furthermore, it also does not interfere at any time with existing, guideline-compliant diagnostic paths or therapeutic measures.
We are continuously working to improve the Cardisio algorithm and depend on the assistance of all users for this: the more information and measurement values the algorithm can process, the more precisely it can identify diseased hearts and distinguish them from healthy hearts.
However, since a slight chance of a misjudgment by the Cardisio algorithm currently exists and is made known to the user, we, as a company, must exclude any claims for damages by users of the Cardisio app, unless outlying evidence is provide. This disclaimer shall apply to legal representatives, as well as vicarious agents of Cardisio GmbH, to the extent that the user asserts any claims against them.
Claims for damages due to an injury of life, limb or health as well as claims for damages arising from a violation of essential contractual obligations shall be excluded from this disclaimer. Essential contractual obligations shall be those whose fulfillment is necessary for achieving the objective of the contract (e.g. provision of the product free from material and legal defects). Liability for damages caused by gross negligence or willful breach of duty by Cardisio GmbH, its legal representatives, or vicarious agents shall also be excluded from the disclaimer. The provisions of the German Product Liability Act (Produkthaftungsgesetz) shall remain unaffected.
