We’re so glad you asked. The Iheart device and family of apps is a holistic approach to health that centers around internal mobility. In a nutshell, internal mobility describes the flexibility and ease of movement in areas like spine, ribcage, diaphragm. This is vital to overall health, as good internal mobility promotes the healthy exchange of nutrients throughout the body, internal organs, and brain – something you cannot live without.

Great question. The aorta is the primary artery that carries nutrient-rich blood from the heart to the rest of the body. As you age – or in the case of chronic disease, stress, and poor lifestyle choices – your aorta stiffens over time. This stiffness disrupts the carefully-timed flow of nutrients and oxygen, leading to negative consequences like early congestive heart failure and cell death in your brain. In fact, aortic stiffness has been shown time and time again to be a proven risk factor for all biological causes of death.

No. The iHeart Oximeter is painless and non-invasive to use. Simply clip it on your index finger and start recording!
The beauty of iheart is in its ability to display real-time data. Rather than a static measure of health, iheart shows you exactly how you’re doing in the moment – as a result of your current lifestyle choices and emotional and physical wellbeing. For example, you can see how variables such as 1) drinking caffeine 2) exercising, and 3) stress affects your internal hearts.
You can improve your internal age by making healthy lifestyle choices. When you use the Internal Age app, you’ll see a difference in your results when you've been exercising, resting, stretching, and eating well compared to when you haven’t.
Yes. Each device can be used with up to 5 profiles for each app.
