LOS ANGELES, July 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Due to overwhelming demand for ambulatory heart tests performed by the Athletes for Life Foundation, Inc. ("AFL" or the "Foundation") using Signalife, Inc.'s (Amex: SGN) award winning Fidelity 100 ECG system, AFL is returning to Ada, Oklahoma, to perform more ECG tests at the request of the Chickasaw Nation and members of the local community. Andrea Pogue MSN, RN, Industrial Coordinator of the Pontotoc Technology Center ("PTC") of The Chickasaw Nation, said, "We are so happy you all decided to come to PTC and bring the trailer to perform life saving screenings."
Willie Gault, Super Bowl champion, Olympic gold medalist, and winner of the prestigious Jim Thorpe award, and one of the founders of Athletes For Life, said, "After our last ECG screenings at the Pontotoc Technology Center, performed as part of a program sponsored by the National Library of Medicine (NLM), a division of the National Institute of Health's (NIH), we were invited back to Ada, Oklahoma to expand our efforts to test both numerous people we were unable to test on our first visit as well as many new members of the public. In our first series of tests, we identified a life threatening condition in a local 16 year old, which on its own justifies our program. I plan to be back in Ada to help raise awareness about heart disease and visit with the young man and his family."
The Foundation is performing heart screening at its trailer at the Carl Albert Hospital until Friday July 18, and will then move its trailer to the Chickasaw Community Center to continue screening until July 26.
Athletes for Life Foundation has continued to select Signalife's award winning technology to perform its heart monitoring and screening. The Signalife monitor is a 12 lead ambulatory ECG system capable of detecting subtle ECG changes that may be significant for early diagnosis of potential heart problems.
