The future of the professional self check-in cardio devices – Heartln®FIT
Nine years ago, in 2008, a young, ambitious inventor and entrepreneur with his roots in Seaport of Odessa, Ukraine, had a brainstorm. ‘What if I create an electrocardiograph so small that it can be taken anywhere and read through the Internet by a team of 24-hour on-call cardiologists?’ he asked himself many times until he realized the idea, transforming it into a cutting-edge technology and creating a company behind it– HeartIn, Inc.
More than 3,000,000 people worldwide, and 200,000+ people in the United States die every year in hospitals in ways that could have been prevented. Heart failures is the 3rd leading cause of death in the US and the cost is close to $1.26 Trillion.
Alex Vinogradov, a goal-oriented and experienced professional investor and the industry visionaire, and Dmytro Fedkov, an ambitious cardiologist an rheumatologist with a PHD degree, funded HeartIn, Inc. in 2016 having not only a destined to succeed business plan but with a bright idea in mind. Those bold professionals wanted to make healthy people’s training safer and more efficient as well as to save lives of patients with cardiovascular issues.
An innovative product they developed and launched together can be briefly described as a hi-tech, monitoring Garment-based ECG device comprising of 4 basic elements:
- special machine washable training T-shirt with built-in textile electrodes
- small, light-weight, simple to use 1-channel (Heartln®FIT) and 12-channel (Heartln®FIT Pro) ECG–continuous recording with the hospital level of signal and real-time data transmission
- Heartln Fitness Application (Heartln®FA)-the app for personal training regimen adjustment (Heart Rate Variability (HRV), maximal oxygen uptake (VO2 MAX) and ‘training impulse’ (TRIMP) measurements
- access to server and software products which collect and report measurements to the server and back to wearers on their mobile devices
The technologically advanced and portable ECG device is gaining more and more supporters which gives hope to the business founders that their goal, early detection and monitoring of heart abnormalities in healthy people and patient with cardiovascular diseases, will be realized sooner than they thought empowering not only patients, doctors but active people who simply take care of their health.
