Exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation (exCR) saves lives but participation in current programs is very low in regional areas.
We developed a technology solution that delivers exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation to people in almost any geographic location, but the program is only available in research trials. We’re working with health providers & people with heart disease to translate our program into clinical practice, so more people can experience the life-changing benefits of exercise rehabilitation.
