The History of EECP

The device used for EECP was invented in the late 1950s at Harvard University.



At Global Cardio Care centers, the history of EECP is shared with people who have a variety of diseases (not only end-stage cardiovascular disease). Cardiovascular diseases can be treated with EECP therapy. We focus on prevention of cardiovascular disease and education, not just end-stage of life treatment. That’s how we differentiate Global Cardio Care services over other institutions. There are more than 900 academic institutions and independent physician practices throughout the U.S and the world that use EECP therapy for cardiovascular disease. They include:

  • University of California Los Angeles
  • University of California San Diego
  • Duke University Medical Center
  • University of Pittsburgh Medical Center
