HeartBeam AIMIGo™ Recognized for Digital Health Innovation in 8th Annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards Program

Prestigious International Annual Awards Program Recognizes Standout Digital Health & Medical Technology Products and Companies

HeartBeam, Inc. (NASDAQ: BEAT), a medical technology company focused on transforming cardiac care through the power of personalized insights, today announced that HeartBeam AIMIGo™ has been selected as winner of the “Best New ECG Technology Solution” award in the 8th annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program. The awards program is conducted by MedTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global digital health and medical technology market.

HeartBeam AIMIGo is a credit card-sized device for patient use at home or anywhere to facilitate remote evaluation of cardiac symptoms. This is the first planned application of the Company’s core vectorelectrocardiography (3D VECG) technology, which captures the heart’s signals in three projections (X, Y, Z) and utilizes a personalized method for synthesizing the data into a 12-lead ECG. HeartBeam AIMIGo is currently under review with FDA.

HeartBeam AIMIGo is accompanied by a mobile app with a simple user interface. When a patient feels symptoms, the app guides them through the process of placing the device on their chest and capturing a 30-second reading. Once a reading is taken, the signals are sent to the cloud, analyzed and converted into a 12-lead ECG recording, and sent to a physician for review. The physician reviews the ECG in the context of the patient’s baseline ECG, symptoms, and medical history, then follows up with the patient on next steps.

Additionally, as a patient uses the device over time, there will be a series of ECG readings. HeartBeam aims to leverage AI to analyze the data to provide a longitudinal view and move beyond today’s 12-lead ECGs, which typically only provide a snapshot in time of the patient’s cardiac status. HeartBeam believes this presents a unique opportunity to unlock a more personalized approach to cardiac care for patients.

“The ‘Best New ECG Technology Solution’ award from MedTech Breakthrough is a reflection of our commitment to provide patients and physicians with the ability to accurately monitor cardiac disease outside of a medical facility,” said Branislav Vajdic, PhD, CEO and Founder of HeartBeam. “The clinical implications of HeartBeam’s technology could extend to a variety of applications, and by coupling AI with this rich data, we can transform how cardiac care is monitored and managed in the future.”

The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Telehealth, Clinical Administration, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR), Virtual Care, Medical Devices, Medical Data & Privacy, and many more. This year’s program attracted thousands of nominations from over 18 different countries throughout the world.

“AIMIGo represents a significant leap in cardiac monitoring technology with implications for broader applications in the future. Every 40 seconds, someone in the US has a heart attack, yet symptoms are often vague enough for patients to ignore them and delay care, which can lead to worse outcomes or even death,” said Steve Johansson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “HeartBeam is actively tackling this huge unmet need of helping to diagnose cardiac events outside of a medical setting with their portable device and groundbreaking 3D VECG technology that enables physicians to remotely assess heart conditions, and prevents patients from delaying care.”
