Heartstrings is a non-invasive technology allowing an early detection and diagnosis of cardio-vascular illnesses and of potential heart attacks. Heartstrings is intended to work by holding it up against the chest where the heart is. Heartstrings has already been tested with over 500 patients. The minds behind this innovative device are those of Allen and Max Mohammadi, two Iranian brothers migrated to Sweden to study.

  

How and when did you come up with your business idea?  

It all started a few years ago. We were at a family party when our grandmother suddenly got a heart attack and died after a few minutes. However, she did not have any symptoms or signs of heart disease. After that shock, we were wondering why there was no way to know she had heart disease. What if we could save her life?
