The iHeart Monitor Showing There’s More to Your Age than Just a Birthdate

There’s the number on your drivers license or passport always confirming how old you are. There’s just rolling out of bed some days reminding you of how old you feel. Then there’s the reality of how old your body is in a physiological sense. Ultimately how healthy you are on the inside could matter the most to the life you get to live.

With the iHeart Physiological Age Monitor, it’s possible to know how healthy your insides are. Being introduced by VitalSines, founder and Toronto area physician Dr. Jess Goodman envisions giving people an ability to see health benefits from exercise, good diet, and stress management.

Goodman said “it’s an attempt to give people an understanding of the potential for continuous monitoring of health signals. I believe once you have sensors in place, people can monitor a good variety of physiological signals such as heart rate, breathing, blood pressure, blood oxygen saturation, temperature, motion, location. Being able to get this on a continuous basis will give an individual a look at their life as never seen before.”

The iHeart is designed to give individuals a detailed understanding of their health at any particular moment. It’s working to deliver information in the best way to empower people to improve their health.

“Let’s stop focusing so much on outer appearance and start looking at what really matters. What’s happening inside the body, affecting our organs, tissues and circulations, has profound importance to health and can be optimized through exercise, diet and healthy living. Aortic Stiffness has been linked to an individual’s risk of developing cardiovascular disease and their overall health, Goodman added”

The iHeart  measures aortic stiffness, a proven powerful indicator of internal health. Measuring Aortic Stiffness, iHeart offers a snapshot of a person’s inner health, providing the user with their Physiological Age. This process is revealing if they are aging faster or slower than indicated by their chronological age.

It’s a Bluetooth fingertip oximeter that takes 30 seconds to capture and analyze the arterial pulse signal. An iPhone or iPad equipped with the free iHeart app presents the pulse signal in graphic detail. Aortic Stiffness Score and Physiological Age are displayed immediately, stored on an iPhone or iPad and also sent to a personal iHeartalive.com webpage. Users can review their past recordings and see how Physiological Age has changed, communicate with other users, and find resources such as meal ideas and fitness plans from the iHeart Ambassadors to lower physiological age. With regular testing, users gain awareness as to how exercise and other positive lifestyle choices are improving their health and physiological age.

“We want to provide people with a system that objectively shows how positive lifestyle choices extend lifespan,” Goodman shared “We see iHeart as a product that is complementary to other fitness tools on the market. iHeart is your window to the life sustaining world within.”

They have launched an Indiegogo.com campaign and are already close to 50% of their modest goal for raising $25,000.00. You can secure one at a launch price of $129.99.
