HeartSciences’ MyoVista® wavECGTM Selected for Heart Screening of Irish Garda National Police Officers

Southlake, Texas, Nov. 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Heart Test Laboratories, Inc. d/b/a HeartSciences (Nasdaq: HSCS; HSCSW) (“HeartSciences” or the “Company”), an AI-powered medical technology company focused on transforming ECGs/EKGs to save lives through earlier detection of heart disease, today announced that its MyoVista® wavECGTM has been selected by Cardiact Ltd (“Cardiact”) to be used in its heart screening program of members of the Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors (“AGSI”).  In addition to the purchase of a MyoVista® device, Cardiact has placed an initial supplies order covering 2,400 patient tests.

Cardiact is rolling out a newly established heart screening program for the AGSI, which represents sergeants and inspectors of the Garda Síochána national police service of Ireland (“Garda”), to be conducted across Ireland and is due to commence on November 27, 2023.  Cardiact has also established a new referral pathway directly to cardiology as part of the program.

Andrew Simpson, Chief Executive Officer of HeartSciences, commented, “We are delighted that the MyoVista® wavECG™ has been chosen for use in this heart screening program of Irish Garda officers.  AI-ECG is beginning to see mainstream acceptance and we are excited to see this new screening program which further validates the enormous commercial opportunity for the MyoVista® and the role of AI-ECG in preventative testing.” Mr. Simpson added, “This latest announcement follows a number of recent positive developments which we believe fundamentally transform and de-risk HeartSciences. This includes our agreements with Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, which provides HeartSciences with what we believe is the largest AI-based ECG algorithm portfolio of any commercial organization. In addition, the AI-ECG  industry continues to make exciting progress, with the recent creation of a new FDA product classification for AI-ECG algorithms which we expect to make clearance more structured and quicker under the 510(k) process. We believe AI-based ECG algorithms are the bridge that will finally allow front-line healthcare professionals to close the diagnostic gap and detect heart disease much earlier and at a lower cost."

About HeartSciences

Heart Test Laboratories, Inc. d/b/a HeartSciences is a medical technology company focused on applying innovative AI-based technology to an ECG (also known as an EKG) to expand and improve an ECG’s clinical usefulness. Millions of ECGs are performed every week and the Company’s objective is to improve healthcare by making an ECG a far more valuable cardiac screening tool, particularly in frontline or point-of-care clinical settings. HeartSciences’ first product candidate for FDA clearance, the MyoVista® wavECGTM, or the MyoVista®, is a resting 12-lead ECG that is also designed to provide diagnostic information related to cardiac dysfunction which has traditionally only been available through the use of cardiac imaging. The MyoVista® also provides conventional ECG information in the same test. The business model, which involves the use of the MyoVista® Device and consumables for each test, is expected to be “razor-razorblade” as the electrodes used with the MyoVista® are proprietary to HeartSciences, and new electrodes are required for every test performed.
