Following a successful Indiegogo campaign, the technology system for measuring heart health and Internal Age is now available on the consumer market
VitalSines, Inc. the innovators behind, iheart, the world’s most accurate biological health reader, today announces the heart-monitoring technology is widely available for purchase. The iheart system measures Aortic stiffness, the best indicator of biological health, through the user’s pulse to determine a user’s Internal Age. By making this technology widely available for consumers, iheart provides users with the ability to monitor their heart health on their own schedule and gives them the motivation needed to pursue a healthy lifestyle.
Aortic stiffness has been linked to an individual’s overall health and predicts the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, future cognitive decline, and risk of death from all causes. As the Aorta tightens, there is increasing stiffness throughout the chest and abdominal cavities, leading to deterioration in all organ systems. iheart measures this stiffness through the user’s pulse and provides immediate results on an iPhone or iPad loaded with the free iheart Internal Age app. With positive health changes, users can see themselves become physiologically younger each day.
“Fifteen years ago I set out to help people realize the importance of Aortic Pulse Wave Velocity to whole body health,which led me to develop iheart. The technology provides users with an objective view and gives them the motivation to improve their lifestyle, therefore increasing both heart and overall health,” said Dr. Jess Goodman, MD, President and Founder of VitalSines, Inc. “Until now, consumers needed expensive equipment costing thousands of dollars to accurately measure the Aortic Pulse Wave Velocity. iheart costs less than $200 and easily clips onto the finger, providing easy to understand test results in 30 seconds.”
Utilizing a Bluetooth finger oximeter, iheart measures deep into the user’s pulse in order to define waves in the blood flow and provide accurate readings of the Aortic Pulse Wave Velocity. The oximeter connects via Bluetooth 4.0 to the app and follows users’ pulse in real-time to provide instant feedback. In addition to storing this data in the app, the information can also be sent to a personal goiheart.com webpage, available for free to all iheart users. At the secure webpage, users can review past recordings and see Internal Age changes, communicate with other users, and find fitness, diet, and lifestyle resources written by wellness professionals to help lower Aortic Pulse Wave Velocity, and Internal Age.
iheart retails for $195 and is available for purchase at http://goiheart.com/. iheart is not a medical device, it is intended to be used as a health and wellness educational tool.
