The customer service and scheduling have been outstanding and the technicians that come to our campus are top-notch professionals. Working with our physicians in having the tests read has been invaluable. If there was ever an issue with a student’s result it’s reassuring to know our doctors are in the loop from the very beginning. I’m looking forward to continuing our relationship for many years to come.”

Athletic Heart: Mobile, Preventive Screening For Athletes

Published in Sports Techie February 14, 2017

From the hotel suite to the gymnasium floor, Orlando, Fla.-based medical screening company Athletic Heart is mobilizing and modernizing the preventive testing of professional athletes.

For decades, athletes preparing for competition have undergone medical screening to ensure their bodies are up to the task. The screening traditionally occurs within the confines of a hospital imaging center, or inside an outpatient clinic. Athletic Heart is changing all that, and it’s using the cloud.

“We bring a hospital imaging department to you,” Athletic Heart CEO Wesley Stokes said. “ECG’s, ECHO’s, Carotids, we can do ABI’s…We can be pretty extensive as far as screening goes.”

Learn About Us

Athletic Heart is made up of an elite team of expert cardiologists, technicians and physiologists in the field of sports science.

Together we have developed a set of very specific protocols that benefit the athlete’s performance and well-being. Commonly used cardiac techniques are fine-tuned exclusively for our athletes. These advancements are based upon collaborative research and development initiatives between our team members and result in the establishment of a unique athlete database which has quickly become the “norm” for athletic cardiovascular testing.

Our state-of-the-art mobile testing unit provides a convenient and affordable solution to preventative cardiac health.

We are able to custom-tailor cardiac or metabolic needs to fit the budget and requirements of any organization. And our on-site imaging and cloud-based interface is a valuable resource for your team’s cardiologist that will allow for quick turnaround and clearance of athletes simultaneously — uploading seamlessly to your team’s EMR.
