MyWanda, the first app of its kind, will offer personalised daily tips, advice and inspiration to encourage women to develop “heart healthy behaviours”.
“We’re excited to bring a technology solution to market that can truly inform, motivate and support women to take better care of their hearts,” said Wanda chief executive Steve Curd.
NetScientific’s chief executive François Martelet added: “This is an important milestone for Wanda and is in line with the company’s strategy to expand its platform of mobile applications to capture patients earlier in their disease trajectory.”
Heart disease is the number one killer of women in America, although San Francisco-based Wanda estimates that around 80% of cases are preventable through education and lifestyle changes.
The company has called the new app, which is available on the US iTunes App Store, a “revolution in healthcare”.
As well as helping women to take control of their health, the app will add to Wanda’s current data and understanding of women’s heart health.
