Cardia is a heart attack early detection system that uses an implantable heart monitor to detect heart attacks early and provide prompt and effective first aid.

Older adults are often lonely and may be alone in case of an emergency, which can lead to delayed assistance. Additionally, many people are unsure of how to provide first aid in an emergency situation.

If someone's heart stops beating, the app will switch to resuscitation mode and provide guidance to the person helping on how to perform CPR.

Cardia bridges the gap between emergency and first aid. In the event of a heart attack, the system sounds an alarm and notifies helpers in the vicinity as well as family members and emergency services.
