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