The Epidemic

people suffer a cardiac arrest each day


person is killed every two minutes


of all deaths can be accounted to cardiac arrest; more than any category of cancer

We Aim To Change This

Our Team

iBeat is a mission-driven team comprised of several former Apple, Intel, Nest, Cisco, GoPro, and Practice Fusion veterans dedicated to building technology that saves lives.
We are architecting the largest privatized safety network in the U.S., which includes a breakthrough heart monitoring smartwatch – the iBeat Heart Watch – that continuously monitors users’ vitals and a lifesaving, community-driven mobile app – Heart Hero. In the case of a life-threatening emergency, the iBeat Heart Watch will instantly alert the user, their loved ones, emergency responders, and our Heart Hero network in real-time, helping ensure immediate care and potentially saving the user’s life.
