Empowering families to help their loved ones live longer, more fulfilling lives.



HeartHero is on a mission to save millions of lives from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), the #1 killer in the U.S. 

Currently, 86 million Americans have cardiac risk factors; 12 million of them are at high risk. Yet, AEDs are only used in two percent of sudden cardiac arrest cases because they are not readily available at home, where 80% of sudden cardiac arrests occurs.

Affordable, portable and easy-to-use by anyone witnessing a cardiac arrest, anywhere at anytime.

At home. At work. At the gym. At the store. On the athletic field. In the car. HeartHero is the lowest-cost, easy-to-use and most portable automated external defibrillator (AED).
