The importance of addressing heart disease.

Globally, heart disease is the number 1 cause of death, killing 12.6 million people a year, which represents 22% of all global deaths.

How is heart disease so deadly?
  • It is difficult to detect: 77% of people with heart disease show no symptoms
  • It is difficult to prevent: for 30% of people, the first and only sign of a heart problem will be from a fatal heart attack.

What our technology can detect.

HeartForce now allows individuals to proactively detect and prevent heart disease, with self-assessment technology that can uncover crucial heart conditions.

HeartForce can detect the conditions mentioned below, which undetected might become life threatening:

  • Coronary Artery Disease (CAD): CAD is the most common form of heart disease and the leading cause of death. It is caused when blood vessels that carry blood to the heart get blocked with plaque.

  • Cardiomyopathy: is a heart disease that makes it harder for the heart to pump blood to the rest of the body.

  • Arrhythmias: when the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat is abnormal. The heartbeat can be too fast, too slow or beating with an irregular pattern. This can lead to a reduction of blood flow to the body.

  • Heart Valve Disease: if one or more valves in the heart do not work properly, blood flow through the heart and the body can become disrupted.

 

If left untreated, the conditions above can lead to a damaged heart muscle which cannot keep up with its workload.

  • Heart Failure: a chronic, progressive condition in which the heart muscle is unable to pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs for blood and oxygen.
