CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 8, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- "It's all about the patient and preventing stokes and dangerous

heart rhythms to save lives" - This has always and remains mine and Cambridge heartwear's focus said MIT academic clinician Dr Rameen Shakur MD PhD . As the Founder and chair of Cambridge heartwear (http://www.cambridgeheartwear.com) he feels humbled that the idea he drew out amongst his friends and the device he first built in his garden shed with his co-founders is changing global healthcare access and monitoring for dangerous cardiac rhythms. "Being recognised as one of Fast Company's World Changing ideas for 2019 even at our young age as a company is awesome!"

"This is testament to all those small startups like us who believe executing an idea should be the main focus of a company rather than getting the right names on a board!" Dr Shakur's Cambridge Heartwear company was already named in the 2018 by Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC) list of most disruptive companies in the health sector. https://www.pwc.co.uk/who-we-are/regional-sites/south-east/insights/5-days-of-disruption-heartwear-south-east.html
