Clinical validation studies using the Cardiac State Diagram to quantify cardiac mechanics have shown promising results, demonstrating a significant ability to predict presence, severity and prognosis in several cardiac disease states.

It has been identified as a potentially valuable tool for clinical decision making and studies of larger patient materials are currently ongoing to confirm the preliminary results and to establish population wide reference ranges.

GrippingHeart's research activities are concurrently focused on transforming the CSD technique into a fully automated imaging tool for assessment of cardiac function in real-time.
