It is time for another interview with yet another recent winner of the EIT Digital Challenge. We are talking to Lars Grieten, CEO, and co-founder at Fibricheck. The Belgian company based in Hasselt was one of the winners in the category Digital Wellbeing in 2016. With Fibricheck’s smartphone app, users can monitor each beat-to-beat interval of their heart rate with the highest accuracy possible to define what kind of arrhythmia is present. During the interview, we spoke about how the company is progressing, their latest achievements and the role that EIT Digital has played in their successes.
