iHeart System Released by Canadian Bio-Tech Startup Vitalsines, Inc.
VANCOUVER, Nov. 13, 2014 /CNW/ - iHeart is a brand new tool for health minded individuals. In an age of fitness measurement tools that assess calories, steps, and sleep, iHeart provides much more. iHeart measures aortic stiffness, a proven powerful indicator of internal health. Measuring Aortic Stiffness, iHeart offers a snapshot of a person's inner health, providing the user with their Physiological Age, revealing if they are aging faster or slower than indicated by their chronological age.
iHeart measures aortic stiffness. Aortic Stiffness has been shown to be a powerful heart health indicator and predicts risk of death from all causes (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20065155). As the Aorta stiffens, there is increasing stiffness throughout the chest and abdominal cavities, leading to deterioration in all organ systems. Monitors similar to iHeart cost over $1000 and aren't marketed for individual use. Vitalsines has developed a system that is intended for personal use, are easy to use and affordable.
"We want to provide people with a system that objectively shows how positive lifestyle choices extend lifespan," says Vitalsines President Dr. Jess Goodman, MD. "We see iHeart as a product that is complimentary to other fitness tools on the market. iHeart is a window to the life sustaining world within. It gives people the positive reinforcement to continue with their positive lifestyle changes."
The iHeart Bluetooth fingertip oximeter takes only 30 seconds to capture and analyze the arterial pulse signal. An iPhone or iPad equipped with the free iHeart Physiological Age app presents the pulse signal in graphic detail. Aortic Stiffness Score and Physiological Age are displayed immediately, stored on an iPhone or iPad and also sent to a personal iHeartalive.com webpage, available for free to all iHeart users. At the secure webpage a user can review each of their past recordings and see how Physiological Age has changed, communicate with other users, and find fitness, diet, and lifestyle resources written by wellness professionals to help lower physiological age. With regular testing, users gain awareness as to how exercise and other positive lifestyle choices are improving their health and physiological age. iHeart is not a medical device, it is a health and wellness educational tool.
