Our heart beats 115200 times a day, it is such a fine machine that does not stop during our lives. However, not many people have the advantage to have this machine in good conditions. Many factors of daily life can permanently affect cardiac function.

Factors such as:

  • Sedentarism.
  • Diet full of Salt, saturated fats and refined sugar.
  • Alcoholic intake.
  • smoking
  • high blood pressure
  • obesity
  • family history of heart disease
  • history of a previous heart attack
  • age over 45 for men, or over 55 for women
  • male gender (there’s a direct correlation for cardiovascular disease)
  • substance abuse
  • low potassium or magnesium

This brings us to our pain point:

Quite a lot of people have to undergo cardiac tests frequently in expensive hospitals with gigantic measuring devices. We are in a time where open health is stronger than ever and it is time to make the patient the point of care.

The market for electrocardiography is quite enormous, as it has become the standard for patients with heart risks.
