Tune into the music of your heartbeat and stay healthy with Majid Al Futtain’s ‘Feel the Beat’ cardiovascular health campaign

Hello Everyone ūüôā

Today I¬†attended the ” Feel the Beat” regional health awareness campaign, brought together in partnership with Majid Al¬†Futtaim, Ministry of Health, UAE and City Center Clinics.

This year, ‘Feel the Beat‘ campaign is delivering complimentary heart health testing to women across 19 shopping malls in the UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Lebanon and Oman.

Building awareness for heart health while motivating women across the region to enjoy the benefits of physical activity, Majid Al Futtaim’s UAE malls are setting the sound of healthy heartbeats to music via the latest technology. The month-long initiative will encourage wellness and exercise through the pumping beats of participants’ own hearts, turning each unique heartbeat into a musical track, and will offer visitors access to complimentary preventative screening and professional healthcare advice to prevent cardiovascular diseases.

Visitors of participating malls: Mall of the Emirates and City Centres Deira, Mirdif, Sharjah and Bahrain will be able to record their heartbeat into a personalized soundtrack mixed by a professional DJ. Participants will be guided to a recording booth where a digital stethoscope will be connected to a computer, to create the unique beat. 9043f87680cc5504_org

The stethoscope will be used to listen, monitor and record the heartbeat (e.g. 60 bpm).  Through a customized app, the DJ will mix the beat within a soundtrack and extract a track from the 500-strong music library (that matches the visitor’s bpm). Each track will then be personalised using special effects to create a unique heartbeat tune for that person.

All shopping malls have allocated areas to host medical professionals who will administer complimentary testing and conduct checkups for women, aiming to raise awareness on cardiovascular health. At each designated location, visitors can check their blood pressure, blood sugar and Body Mass Index (BMI) to determine if they are at risk for heart diseases and if they should need follow-ups with more extensive examinations.
