The first mobile cardiological clinic to travel to parts of the world without access to care

MOBILE CARDIOLOGY

 

HEART MOBILE

The Heart Mobile is a major step forward in healthcare for the most disadvantaged.

—  DR DAVID LUU 
FOUNDER OF THE HEART FUND

PIONEER IN

MOBILE CARDIOLOGY

 

The Heart Fund removes geographical and economic barriers by creating The Heart Mobile

The Heart Mobile is a mobile clinic that travels to the most isolated and disadvantaged areas. It enables carrying out prevention and information campaigns, training medical personnel, screening for cardiovascular diseases and providing care that meets international quality standards.

CARDIOLOGY AND MOBILITY

The Heart Fund, a pioneer in mobile cardiology, has devised a solution to deliver healthcare to the most isolated areas. The Heart Mobile gives people access to high-quality cardiological care and diagnosis without their having to walk for days to reach a health center.

 

The mobile clinic was designed for the full treatment of cardiovascular diseases by offering a precise diagnosis of cardiac pathologies, medical care and information on the prevention of risk factors. With a real-time connection, it is medically autonomous in the most hostile environments.

 

A TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION

Equipped with latest-generation technologies, The Heart Mobile can communicate and be located in real time through its satellite telecommunication network.

 

It includes an echocardiography room, a radiology unit and a mobile laboratory, as well as a telemedicine platform. It carries connected devices that allowing taking an electrocardiogram, determining oxygen saturation with a pulse oximeter, taking blood pressure and determining blood glucose.

 

Medical data for each patient is stored in a personal medical file with biometric recognition that is kept on secure and certified servers.

MEDICAL

INNOVATION

 

Design of the mobile clinic

Inspired by military hospitals, The Heart Fund was stimulated to enter the extraordinary world of mobile medicine. Entirely planned and designed by engineers and cardiologists, The Heart Fund mobile clinic includes the most sophisticated diagnostic technologies. The Heart Mobile is equipped to precisely screen all types of cardiovascular diseases

in all types of environments.

CARDIAC SONOGRAM 

The Heart Mobile is equipped with one of the lightest portable ultrasound devices. Using advanced imaging technology, it provides revolutionary image quality and enables detecting and diagnosing even the most complex congenital malformations. It is an indispensable tool for cardiologists and surgeons in deciding on a future therapy.

ANALYSIS LABORATORY

Using a revolutionary technique, this portable lab is one of the world's fastest and best-performing. A drop of blood and 50 seconds are all that is needed for a complete biological assessment. It is required for evaluating the state of advancement of the disease, complications and the patient's pre-operational status.

RADIOLOGY UNIT

With the portable x-ray generator, The Heart Mobile can take digital pictures that are available immediately, even in the desert or in the jungle. Images are stored automatically on a secure server, and each patient has a personal medical folder. 

TELEMEDICINE PLATFORM

The telemedicine platform enables the local team, wherever it is found, to be in contact with international experts to discuss the most complex cases or confirm a diagnosis. Using a high-definition camera, the teams can carry out remote consultations.

ELECTROCARDIOGRAM

The electrocardiogram (EKG) analyzes the heart's electrical activity and enables detecting irregular heartbeat. An EKG is made systematically when screening for irregular heartbeat in children and adults.

COMING SOON

INTERVENTIONAL CATHETERIZATION

The Heart Mobile 2 will include a cardiac catheterization room for diagnosing even the most complex pathologies. The great advantage of catheterization is that interventional procedures can be carried out to treat congenital malformations without operating, and therefore without a scar. Children are thus able to return home in less than 48 hours.

COMING SOON

CARDIAC OPERATING ROOM

The Heart Mobile 2 will be equipped with a hybrid cardiac operating room including a cardiopulmonary bypass device that enables open-heart surgery by ensuring oxygen flow to organs and tissues when the heart has been stopped. From heart surgery to pacemaker implantation, the hybrid operating room will offer optimal health and safety conditions.
