Our mission is to make safe, effective, inspiring rehab available to millions of heart and lung patients worldwide.
3 out of the 4 biggest killers in the world are related to cardiovascular and pulmonary disease. Peer-reviewed research suggests that cardiac rehabilitation reduces cardiovascular deaths by nearly 45% and risk of hospital admissions by 30%. 1
We are a team who has lived through chronic disease ourselves and seen the transformative effects of exercise based rehab on our own families.
We are scientists who conduct rigorous, peer-reviewed research and disseminate our findings widely.
We are clinicians who understand the value of new care delivery models and how transformational they can be for patient health.
We are mathematicians and data scientists who believe in harnessing data to improve existing therapies, and who understand that at scale we can do exponentially more good for the world.
We are macro optimists and micro pessimists who know that creating a better future is only ever found in sweating every minor detail.
A world where any person who suffers from a life threatening chronic condition can access the top heart and lung rehabilitation therapies and be given a new lease on life.View the research
