Backed by an Experienced Cross-Functional Team

Vektor Medical, Inc. was founded by a close-knit team of engineers, scientists, doctors, and entrepreneurs with the shared belief that harnessing the power of computational modeling could vastly improve cardiac arrhythmia care.  

Our mission is to deliver an innovative, non-invasive arrhythmia mapping solution that’s capable of helping physicians provide personalized solutions for the treatment of complex cardiac rhythm disorders. We aim to accomplish this through superior leadership, cutting-edge technology, ongoing physician education and outreach, and patient service.
