MindMics (Massachusetts): MindMics offers heart monitoring technology through low-frequency acoustical vibrations detected in the ear canal with technology embedded in earbuds and hearing aids. 

Nanowear (New York): Nanowear is an AI-based remote diagnostics tool utilizing cloth-based nanotechnology that allows nanosensors to capture more than 85 medical-grade biomarkers directly from the skin. 

SmartCardia (Switzerland): SmartCardia produces a patch that remotely monitors patients, allowing mobile cardiac telemetry, RPM, Holter, extended Holter and event monitoring. 

Each company will receive $150,000 investment and access to clinicians and administrators while executing their pilot projects and clinical studies in the HeartX program.
