The American Heart Association has donated a Higi machine to the St. Petersburg Foundation. The machine is equipped with a blood pressure cuff, a scale, a BMI calculator and a heart rate monitor. The machine will be placed at the Lealman Exchange, a community center operated by the St. Petersburg Foundation through a partnership with Pinellas County. The Higi machine has a large potential to make a positive impact on residents’ lives by helping them better monitor their vital statistics. SPF also plans to operate programming around the new machine, like bringing local medical professionals to the Exchange to help residents analyze their health data and receive free in-person check-ups.
