EKHO Heart Rate Monitors Donates Portion of Proceeds to the NVFC

EKHO Heart Rate Monitors Donates Portion of Proceeds to the NVFC

Tuesday, 04 November 2008

Firefighters push themselves to the limits every day. Whether responding to an incident, training, or working out, your body and heart experience major stress. To prepare yourself for this intensity, you should monitor your heart-health and strengthen it through targeted workouts. In 2007, EKHO Heart Rate Monitors began a partnership with the NVFC to help firefighters become heart-healthy. As part of the partnership, EKHO donates a percentage of all profits from sales generated from the NVFC Heart-Healthy Firefighter Program.

Heart attack continues to be the leading cause of line-of-duty firefighter deaths. According to the United States Fire Administration’s annual report, Firefighter Fatalities in the United States, heart attack caused 44 percent of all on-duty firefighter deaths in 2007. The NVFC, through its groundbreaking Heart-Healthy Firefighter Program, is working to combat this alarming statistic and reverse this largely preventable trend.

Knowing the signs, symptoms, and treatment of heart-related issues, along with being able to listen to what your body is telling you, gives you power over a potentially deadly situation. EKHO Heart Rate Monitors allow you to monitor your heart rate in “real-time,” alerting you immediately should your heart rate fall or rise beyond the set limits. Whether your heart rate is too slow or too fast, you’re instantly alerted by an auditable alarm. EKHO heart rate monitors will help you understand how to strengthen your heart during workouts to ensure you are at optimum heart-health when duty calls.
