Cardiotrack is the sixth business started by CEO Eduardo Serna. It was created to streamline the health and safety checks of workers in Mexico. By law, employees are required to have their blood pressure checked daily before they are allowed to operate heavy machinery. Typically, a nurse would be on-site to conduct approximately 50 blood pressure checks per shift. With the help of his co-founders Itzel Alvarez and Daniel Hernandez, Eduardo developed kiosks for workers to have their blood pressure recorded and analyzed to flag potentially harmful outcomes.
