UK-based healthtech startup my mhealth has secured £2.2 million in funding for the development of CUOREMA, media reports said. Project CUOREMA focuses on developing a new, patient-centered and intelligent cardiac rehabilitation support system. Headquartered in Bournemouth, my mhealth was established this year by two NHS medical consultants – Simon Bourne and Tom Wilkinson in 2021.
CUOREMA by my mhealth is backed by Ospedale Malcantonese from Switzerland, Games for Health from the Netherlands and the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland from Switzerland. The project aims to utilise the cardiac rehabilitation element of the myHeart app and incorporate biofeedback, intelligent algorithms and gamification features.
Dr. Simon Bourne, Chief Executive Officer of my mhealth told the media, “We are thrilled to be partnering with such talented and diverse teams on this innovative and important project over the next few years. Each organisation brings a very unique perspective to the table, allowing for a thoughtful and comprehensive approach to tackling heart health. I am extremely passionate about digital health and this has the potential to change many lives for the better, helping us transform cardiac rehabilitation for patients across Europe.”
Recently, UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said that the UK is close to turning the corner in its fight against the Covid-19 virus. While defending the government’s roadmap out of the lockdown, he stressed that it is important to remain careful in the last lap of the process.
“By the time we get to June 21 almost all social restrictions will be lifted, so there’s only a little bit more time to go but it’s right we do that in a careful way,” the minister said.
