 "Harnessing the power of the skin to protect your Heart"

Our Concept

Skin nerve stimulation via nociceptors induced cardioprotection against myocardial infarction. Importantly, since

the nervous system initiates the protection, CardioPatch will work before reperfusion, so it could be applied in the ambulance or

emergency room with effect!

The Science behind the concept

Non-traumatic stimulation of specific region of skin was found to protect the heart muscle from death by a mechanism that

 involves the nervous system. Reduced infarct size (dead tissue white area, reduced) validated in mouse, dog, rat, and rabbit, in studies performed by us and others.

The mechanism involves a nerve signal sent from the skin to the heart, and the release of protective neuropeptides in the heart muscle.
