HURD HEALTH GROUP
Together with Life
We are removing the fear and pain that comes from heart attacks and heart failure by giving people a second chance at a life, with a treatment and support they deserve. Our devices will allow patients to retake their freedom and go from just surviving to thriving.
At 21, my girlfriend, now wife was diagnosed with a heart defect. As an engineering student, I started researching potential treatment plans. My interest eventually inspired me to design a medical device for people suffering from unhealthy hearts.
I’ve spent over three years working on a completely wireless ventricular assist device that will allow patients to spend less time in hospitals and live more normal lives. I have also designed the device to be affordable, in comparison with all other treatment options available.
In the process, the Project has been awarded a support grant from the State of Iowa, through which the Project is applying for a National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Science Foundation grants last year. The project is currently in the Startup Factory accelerator and the NSF I-Core accelorator.
As a bio-medical engineer, my dream and my objective are to build medical devices that will save not only the lives of my loved ones, but those of yours, too.
