HeartLogic™ case studies
Challenging cases deserve extraordinary technology. Explore the case studies below to see how HeartLogic™ can help detect early warning signs of worsening heart failure weeks in advance1 using a propriety algorithm from a diverse set of physiological sensors.
Results of case studies are not necessarily predictive of all cases.
