iHeart™ Internal Age Monitor
- Whats in the Box?
What is the iHeart Device?
As Seen on Dragons Den Canada
The iHeart device is a fingertip pulse reader that detects and records arterial pulsations in your finger. The sampling rate of the iHeart device is so high that it can detect distinct waves of blood coming from the heart, travelling down the aorta and reflecting back. The iHeart device transmits these recording to your iPad or iPhone, where the iHeart app translates them into a pulse wave for analysis and display. After 30 seconds, you'll have immediate results: Internal Age and Aortic Stiffness reading.
The iHeart device measures real-time heart rate and blood oxygen levels. The amount of oxygen in your blood indicates the overall efficiency of your respiratory system. iHeart device readings are intended to be used only for fitness and educational purposes. What are the benefits of the iHeart system? The iHeart system gives you: More in-depth knowledge about your body Instant feedback on the health effects of your actions Quick and accurate pulse wave, heart rate, and pulse oxygen saturation data On-the-go testing securely linked to your iPhone or iPad Visual indicators.
- iHeart™ Internal Age Monitor - A Patented Device and App which shows the users' internal 'Physiological Age' in just 30 seconds by measuring aortic stiffness (Requires Tablet or Phone not supplied).
- iHeart™ is a preventative tool - 17.3 million people die from cardiovascular disease every single year! "An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure" - with iHeart™ you can now ascertain your 'Physiological Age' and then take remedial action to lower your readings.
- Take control of your own health and monitoring with 24/7 bio-monitoring - Use iHeart™ to measure the benefits from the supplement that you are taking. We very strongly recommend using in conjunction with 'Ethos Endymion' and 'Ethos Ethozyme' to help to reduce arterial stiffness and to lower your physiological age readings.
- Current industry standard devices for measuring aortic stiffness costs £16,500 and require a skilled operator - now you can get exactly the same results, in the comfort of your own home, for under £150!
- Can be prescribed by your doctor as a risk stratification tool. Can be used by insurance agencies as a risk stratification tool. Ideal for General Practitioners, Sports Trainers & Enthusiasts and Alternative Health Practitioners alike... N.B. Batteries Not Included.
- iPhone/iPad & Android Compatible
- While the iHeart system shows you overall health trends and enables wellness tracking, it is not a medical device. Do not use any component of the iHeart system to diagnose or manage any medical condition.
The benefits of walking are well documented in medical research journals. Walking for just 30 minutes daily has been proven to normalize blood pressure, reverse diabetes, improve sleep, reduce risk of dementia, relieve symptoms of anxiety and depression, and lead to a longer and healthier life. Why then, with such clear evidence, are physicians prescribing so much medication rather than leading crowds on early morning hikes?
Physicians are primarily focused on the treatment of current ailments rather than the prevention of future ones. It is difficult for doctors to offer patients an overall assessment of health. iHeart measures aortic stiffness, a medically-accepted predictor of risk of death from all causes. Aortic stiffness is linked to stiffness of the spinal column, internal organ function, and circulation of cerebrospinal fluid to the brain, and is known to predict risk of future heart disease and dementia in individuals as young as 30.
Aortic stiffness is easily improved with exercise (including walking), a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids, stress reduction, and multiple other factors. iHeart aims to guide people in making healthy lifestyle choices and to show objective results that lead individuals to feeling better and living longer.
iHeart is available for both iOS and Android (5.0+) phones and tablets.
iHeart is NOT available for iPod’s or any personal computers/laptops.
The iHeart device is a fingertip pulse reader that detects and records arterial pulsations in your finger. iHeart transmits these recordings to an app on your iOS/Android device and translates them into a pulse wave for display and analysis. After a 30-second you’ll be presented with an Internal Age.
Other pulse oximeters measure heart rate and blood oxygen saturation but their functionality usually stops there. iHeart does offer these measurements, but additionally is the only consumer-level product capable of measuring Aortic Pulse Wave Velocity and, subsequently, determining Internal Age.
We recommend that you use your index or middle finger. This can be on either hand. Cold hands or poor circulation may affect your reading but this can usually be overcome by rubbing them together and clenching/releasing your fist a few times to stimulate blood flow.
There are a few things to keep in mind when taking an iHeart reading to maximize results and your understanding of them:
- Rest for 2 minutes before testing.
- Rest your arm on a flat surface such as a table or your leg throughout the test.
- Take a reading at the start of each day to establish a Baseline. This is the number that you want to see change over time as it is reflective of your overall health.
- Non-baseline tests taken throughout the day will vary due to common fluctuations in blood pressure. By observing trends in your iHeart results you’ll develop a responsive understanding of your internal health. Readings are affected by exercise, stress, and other factors, and tests taken throughout the day can be useful for recognizing short term effects of stress and other lifestyle choices.
Factors that will affect readings:
Movement and speaking during the test will cause inconsistent readings. Over time you’ll be able to recognize when a reading has been compromised as there’ll be spikes in the usually-consistent pulse shape.
Food and drink will affect readings just as they affect blood pressure. It is for this reason that we suggest taking a baseline reading in the morning before having anything to eat or drink.
Coffee and caffeinated teas have negative effects on iHeart readings, both in the short term and long term. One can expect to receive a higher-than-usual Internal Age reading if caffeine has recently been consumed.
An irregular heartbeat will have an effect on iHeart readings. You’ll be able to see if your heart is beating irregularly on the recording screen’s pulse wave display. A regular heartbeat will have consistent spacing between each pulse wave. If the spaces are inconsistently spaced, the heartbeat is irregular. If your heartbeat is irregular for the majority of the 30-second test then iHeart will not be able to produce an Internal Age result. After two unsuccessful readings iHeart offers you the choice to ‘Save Pulse Wave Analysis Anyway’. It may be advisable to review this test with your doctor.
The red dot on the pulse shape at the top left of your iHeart results screen signifies the beginning of the Aortic Reflected Wave.
Please refer to our blog post, ‘Aortic Pulse Wave Velocity (AoPWV) vs. Pulse Wave Velocity (PWV)’ for a more in-depth look at the Aortic Reflected Wave.
The iHeart system consists of:
- iHeart fingertip device
- iHeart Internal Age app
- Personal Online Dashboard providing recordings, calculations, and analyses of your Internal Age readings (stored on a secure server).
