Discover DepistHTA, the free application that helps to interpret blood pressure figures

Blood pressure


The Hypertension Research Foundation (FRHTA), a foundation recognized as a public utility, launched the DEPIST HTA application in September 2019.

Why launch DEPISTHTA :

  • The HTA affects more than 10 million French people.
  • The declared rates of prevalences are largely underestimated: more than 50% of cases of hypertension are undeclared among men and about 35% among women.
  • The consequences of hypertension are catastrophic: stroke, heart attack, heart failure …

The application in a few words:

  • A free application downloadable on Android and IOS.
  • An application that gives advice on when a new blood pressure screening test should be carried out.
  • Can give an alert in case of a rise in blood pressure.


How does DEPISTHTA work ?

It’s simple. Once you have downloaded the application, you take a picture of your electronic sphygmomanometer screen and the application interprets the results and directs you on how to proceed.

The application does not carry out a medical diagnosis, but provides personalised advice.
