About the Startup
Describe your product in 3 words.
Proactive heart health
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
Patients with known heart rhythm abnormalities need immediate access to their EKG rhythm data, as well as a direct means of sharing this data with their physicians. Likewise cardiologists want to know when their patients are experiencing abnormal rhythms. It made sense to design a solution that leveraged widely adopted technologies like the Apple iPhone to optimize convenience for patients and providers, and that could provide a clinically relevant, reliable EKG recording.
What makes your product special?
Kardia Mobile is a clinically proven solution endorsed by leading cardiologists from around the globe. The first FDA-cleared EKG device of its kind literally puts proactive heart health management at peoples’ fingertips. In just 30 seconds, visualize heart rate and rhythm in real-time and know immediately if rhythm is normal, or if atrial fibrillation, a leading cause of stroke, is detected in your EKG. People can even share EKG recordings with their personal physicians.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
Witnessing the convergence of breakthrough machine learning technology and the data-driven practice of medicine to meaningfully impact heart health and empower people is both a humbling and exhilarating experience. Seeing the reaction from physicians and users alike when they try Kardia Mobile for the first time is our greatest reward!
