LOS ANGELES, June 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Signalife, Inc. (Amex: SGN) and Athletes for Life Foundation announced that the Athletes for Life Foundation will conduct heart monitoring and screening at the Pontotoc Technology Center in Ada, Oklahoma. Willie Gault, Olympic gold medalist, Super Bowl champion, and a founder of the Athletes for Life Foundation, will be present on June 24-25th to participate in a children's health education program sponsored by the National Library of Medicine (NLM), a division of the National Institute of Health's (NIH).
The Athletes for Life Foundation has selected Signalife's award winning technology to perform heart monitoring and screening as part of the program's activities. The Signalife monitor is a 12 lead ambulatory ECG device capable of detecting subtle ECG changes that may be significant for early diagnosis of potential heart problems.
The Athletes for Life Foundation's co-founder, Willie Gault, commented: "I cannot begin to put into words how grateful I am to the NIH for inviting me to join their efforts in educating children. The foundation is bringing Signalife's heart monitoring and screening to the public, for free, as part of its continued effort to shift the healthcare balance from costly reactive heart disease treatments to early heart disease detection. A number of high profile sports and media personalities have recently passed away from heart disease. Perhaps use of this technology would have allowed life saving intervention. The foundation believes that providing annual heart screening for all people, before symptoms are apparent, can have an enormous impact in our efforts to save lives and lower the cost of healthcare throughout the world. We are thankful to all those who have supported our efforts to 'save lives, one heart at a time'."
