Continuous monitoring device with advanced features and analytics to deliver personalized insights directly to the smartphone
Biotricity, Inc. (NASDAQ:BTCY), a modern medical technology company focused on delivering innovative, remote biometric monitoring solutions, today announced the availability of Bioheart, a direct-to-consumer heart monitor that offers the same continuous heart monitoring technology used by physicians. Showcased in prototype form at CES 2020, Bioheart has shipped to preorder customers and is now available for purchase at www.bioheart.com.
The launch of Bioheart opens a new market and revenue stream for Biotricity while expanding the company’s total addressable market by $1.24B, the global heart rate monitoring market. “Launching Bioheart and expanding into this new market is an important step for Biotricity and our ultimate goal of building a complete cardiac ecosystem to service individuals throughout their heart health journey,” said Dr. Waqaas Al-Siddiq, Founder and CEO of Biotricity.
Heart conditions are intermittent, requiring long term data collection for effective insights. With continuous monitoring, Bioheart reinvents personal heart management with retrospective snapshots. Introducing a groundbreaking new capability, users can create snapshots of rhythm data by reviewing past data and marking it for personal records. This is a first-of-its-kind feature that will help individuals look back at their data for a richer understanding of their lifestyle impact and heart health.
Bioheart features include:
With the Bioheart smartphone app, users can:
Bioheart incorporates the Company’s proprietary advanced heart technology, combined with powerful analytics and continuous rhythm monitoring, to help individuals understand and improve their heart health. It provides 24/7 electrical heart rhythm monitoring and recording with three different views of the heart, which can be streamed live on the Bioheart smartphone app. Bioheart is the most accurate heart monitor available without a prescription.
“Bioheart combines unparalleled accuracy in a heart monitoring device with continuous data, advanced heart health insights, and powerful features tailored to individuals at risk for heart disease or who want precise data for performance tracking, optimization and preventative cardiac wellness,” said Dr. Al-Siddiq. “Bioheart furthers Biotricity’s mission of developing revolutionary healthcare solutions that help engage and empower individuals to take control of their health, starting with the deadliest chronic disease and one of healthcare’s largest cost drivers: cardiac disease.”
Heart condition signs are typically intermittent, and most heart monitoring devices only capture short periods of heart activity. These devices have limited capabilities and do not provide individuals with the heart data or tools needed to support preventative care and effective lifestyle improvements. With Bioheart’s continuous monitoring and long-term data collection approach, users can analyze heart data from previous months, well after the initial recording, to understand changes and long-term trends.
“Bioheart has the potential to make an immediate, life-changing impact for those who use it,” added Dr. Al-Siddiq. “As a direct manufacturer, we’re thrilled to have been able to accelerate our market delivery to the general market in less than a year, ahead of schedule and in time for the busy holiday gifting season.”
