What is the iHeart System?

The iHeart System is a personal health and wellness tool that analyzes your unique 'pulse shape' to determine your Physiological Age. The iHeart System is a fingertip sensor that records your arterial pulse signal. This pulse signal information is then used to measure aortic stiffness. More information about the way iHeart System uses this information to determine your Physiological Age can be found at www.iheartalive.com.

Safety Information and Cautions

The User Manual, including all precautionary information and instructions, should be read before use.
Always use the iHeart System as indicated in this manual, including finger selection and finger positioning in the sensor.


iHeart Warning sign Warning: Do not adjust, repair, open, disassemble, or modify this unit. Injury or equipment damage could occur. Return unit for servicing.

Do NOT use a sensor or cable with exposed optical or electrical components. Do NOT use damaged sensors or cables.

Caution: Do not autoclave (steam sterilize) or submerge the equipment in any cleaning solution. This will seriously damage the unit.

Caution: Bright lights (including overhead lighting fixtures, pulsating strobe lights and direct sunlight) directed on the sensor, may prevent the system from acquiring valid readings.

Caution: Keep your finger and body still during recordings to avoid motion noise. Failure to apply the sensor properly may lead to incorrect measurements.

  • Externally applied coloring and texture (nail polish, acrylic nails, glitter, etc.)
  • Severe anemia.
  • Low arterial perfusion (cold hands should be warmed before use of the iHeart System)
