Health for all,

The Heart Mobile™ is a smart ecosystem that participates in the fight against cardiovascular disease in developing countries. Revolving around cardiac mobile clinics, it allows for the deployment of a culturally relevant and coordinated action to better prevent, assess, and manage chronic diseases in low-resource settings.

The Heart Mobile™ tackles medical deserts by bringing the cardiac center directly to the doorsteps of underserved communities.
