Merlin Digital showcases External Counter Pulsation therapy (ECP)

Merlin Digital a UAE based diversified technology, with interests in Robotics, Vertical Farming and Modular Construction recently introduced a ground breaking Health and Wellness Therapy to the UAE market. This was done in collaboration with the Sharjah Research Technology and Innovation park. SRTIP is an initiative of H.H Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al-Qasimi, the ruler of Sharjah and a member of the Federal Supreme Council of the UAE, to bring the latest scientific developments and research projects to the emirate of Sharjah.


First developed over half a century ago, as a resuscitative tool to support the failing heart and over the course of last few decades, it has evolved into a modern effective and low cost therapy known as external counter-pulsation (ECP) therapy

ECP Therapy has proven to be a safe, effective, and low-cost noninvasive treatment for patients with debilitating angina and chronic heart failure who are poor candidates for revascularization procedures and have suboptimal results from other therapies. ECP Therapy is a United States of America Food &Drug Administration (US FDA) approved therapy that is used to enhance the overall blood circulation in our body. ECP Therapy acts as an external “cardiac assist device” helping the heart perform more efficiently with little effort or stress during the session. This process delivers oxygen-rich blood to all vital organs inside the body including the heart. Over time, this process improves the function of the heart delivering more cardiac output (stronger heart) with less effort resulting in a more efficient vascular system.

It is a Non-Invasive therapy which is used to help patients with Angina and Heart Disease and can also be used as a preventive therapy for people who have a strong family history of such conditions. People who are suffering from Restless Leg Syndrome, Diabetes, Hypertension, and many more conditions can also benefit from this therapy. It is also used by athletes as a Recovery Therapy to improve their exercise tolerance. The therapy is also effective in addressing sexual dysfunction.

Speaking about the therapy Sharad Bachani, Co-Founder & Managing Director, Merlin Digital enthused, “A person is required to undergo therapy ideally daily over a course of 35 days for best results, though even a single session can increase energy levels and stamina. The therapy is very simple and lasts for just 1 hour without any movement restriction as long as the patient is on the therapy bed with inflatable cuffs and ECG sensors in place. The patient can enjoy watching their favorite TV shows or answer emails and phone calls whilst undergoing therapy. Each session costs 300 AED only.”
