iHeart – The Essential Dating Tool
On the first or second date, questions are gently posed to find out about work, family, past relationships, finances, desire for children as well as defining a range of likes and dislikes. Finding out about your date’s personal and familial health issues, considering your date’s likelihood of developing serious illness and estimating your potential life partner’s lifespan is far more difficult. You could, of course, determine if your date smokes, gets enough exercise and has a healthy diet but that isn’t enough information to give you a clear answer.
iHeart is a fingertip pulse sensor using a 30-second test and a mobile app to define overall health and lifespan. iHeart measures Aortic Pulse Wave Velocity to determine Aortic Stiffness. Aortic Stiffness is a single, integrative health metric that is well accepted by medical scientists to predict the risk of death from all causes. Aortic Stiffness is a measure of Core Mobility and Internal Organ function. With good Core Mobility, each breath compresses and then releases the Internal Organs, promoting Internal Organ circulation, organ function and overall health. With good Core Mobility, each breath pumps nourishing fluid up the spinal cord and through the brain. Aortic Stiffness has been shown to identify individuals in their 30’s (and possibly younger) at higher risk for heart disease, stroke, liver disease, cognitive decline and dementia.
Checking your date’s overall health using iHeart is a simple, easy and fun activity. iHeart provides your date’s Internal Age. Internal Age will be younger than chronological age if your date’s health risks are lower than average. Internal Age will be older than chronological age if health risks are higher than average.
iHeart, for the first time, let’s you ‘look under the hood and kick the tires’ to make sure you’re not investing time and emotional energy in someone with a high risk of future illness and early death.
