Rediscover your heart health

Did you know?

There are 60,000 miles of blood vessels in the human body.  Sewn end-to-end, they would wrap around the world — twice.  Every millimeter of every blood vessel is lined with a single layer of cells (endothelial cells) known as the endothelial lining or simply, the endothelium.  The total surface area of the endothelium is 4,000-7,000 m2. To put this into perspective, the surface area of a standard, professional-sized tennis court is 261 m2. The endothelium is the largest organ in the human body! Thus, having a window into the health of one’s endothelium is a powerful tool to assess vascular health.

Our journey

About us

Our mission is to empower everyone to be able to check their vascular health anywhere, anytime. Our company began as an idea on paper. A concept that could shift the paradigm of how cardiovascular disease could be detected and managed using a metric that the medical community has known about for more than 100 years.

Since our founding, we have designed, prototyped and patented a device that can measure vascular health with a push of a button. We have partnered with top 5 ranked medical centers as well as clinicians and business leaders at Harvard, Stanford, Duke, UCLA, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Morganthaler, PwC, Pfizer and AstraZeneca to prepare this product for the final stages of the FDA approval process.
