Heart disease affects more than 3.5 million Australians. Every 10 minutes, someone dies of a heart attack. For half of them, sudden death was the first indication they had a heart problem.
IntelliHeart is an innovative Australian approach to the assessment of cardiovascular disease - Australia's number 1 cause of death and disability. The IntelliHeart system makes it possible to detect early signs of cardiovascular disease and initiate appropriate treatment to reduce the people's chances of having a heart attack or stroke in the future.
