MULTIFIT

Movn is based on MULTIFIT, a home-based program that satisfies all AACVPR, ACC, and HFSA guidelines for secondary prevention, and was developed at Stanford University's School of Medicine.

MULTIFIT has been shown to improve outcomes for patients with coronary artery disease, heart failure, hypertension, acute coronary syndrome, hypertension, and diabetes, and has been validated on over 70,000 patients.
