About HeartBeam Inc.
HeartBeam is a cardiac technology company that has developed the first and only 3D-vector ECG platform intended for patient use at home. By applying a suite of proprietary algorithms to simplify vector electrocardiography (“VECG”), the HeartBeam platform enables patients and their clinicians to determine quickly and easily if symptoms are due to a heart attack so care can be expedited if required. HeartBeam has two patented products in development. HeartBeam AIMI(TM) is software for acute care settings that provides a 3D comparison of baseline and symptomatic 12-lead ECG to identify a heart attack more accurately. HeartBeam AIMIGo(TM) is the first and only credit-card-sized, 12-lead output ECG device coupled with a smartphone app and cloud-based diagnostic software system to facilitate remote evaluation of cardiac symptoms.
