Sang Yeon Hwang

Co-Founder, Heartisans

Sang Yeon Hwang is a co-founder at Heartisans, which is developing a smartwatch to accurately measure blood pressure, a critical vital sign still missing from wearables today. He’s also working on a machine-learning algorithm in a local hospital to predict the onset of a sudden cardiac arrest (ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation) up to 10 minutes in advance, with the aim of providing an advance warning and locating the closest AED machine to an individual’s physical location to enable faster treatment and potentially save lives.
