In the box, you'll find a MOCAheart device, micro-USB charging cable, welcome cards and user manual. Our carrying accessories ( Leather Keychain and iPhone 6 Case ) are available for purchase at our online shop, and through our online retailers.
Insert the micro-USB head (gold-side up) into a USB port and connect the other side to your MOCAheart. The indicator light next to the MOCAheart charging port will turn red, indicating that your device is charging. Once a full charge is achieved (~60 minutes), the indicator light will turn green.
Pairing MOCAheart with your phone is easy! A common mistake is trying to pair MOCAheart via your phone’s Settings. There’s no need to do this, and this actually interferes with the app -- so if you did pair it in your phone’s General Settings, we ask that you go ahead and disconnect the devices and follow the instructions below:
Turn on MOCAheart - the sensor’s red light should also turn on.
Turn on Bluetooth on your phone
Open the MOCACARE App on your phone
Place your thumbs gently on the sensors. Do not press down - just lightly rest your thumbs on the surface.
Follow the instructions on the screen. Your measurement should start automatically!
MOCAheart is the world's smallest heart health tracker, created to help users develop healthy lifestyle habits. MOCAheart tracks your heart's vitals--heart rate, blood oxygen and blood flow--, allows you to view trends and changes in your measurements over time, and provides a secure chat to share measurements with loved ones and physicians.
MOCA Index is a qualitative measurement based on your blood velocity. It was created with reference to multiple and extensive research studies by institutions including MIT & Stanford that have shown a correlation between the pressure exerted by the heart and the speed at which blood travels through the body. In short, the faster blood flows through your body, the higher your blood pressure should be.
Currently, MOCAheart is a consumer health electronic device that does not require FDA approval. However for upcoming product features, we are in the process of acquiring FDA clearance and will obtain it in the near future.
Once your place your thumbs on the device, it may still be trying to read your thumbs, so it will indicate "Bad Signal". Once the device can read your thumbs (usually a few seconds), it will say, "Good Signal" and then it will lead to countdown page. After this, the measurement will begin and you must keep your thumbs on the device for approximately 25 seconds. While measuring, you'll see a wave below the black M and it'll begin to slowiy fill up. When it fills up, you'll have your measurement.
Take a measurement anytime you're curious about how your heart is doing. It’s a good idea to take a measurement at least once a day at around the same time and under similar conditions so you can better understand trends in your cardiovascular health.
The battery may be depleted and this indicates that your MOCAheart needs to be recharged. If the light still doesn't turn on after charging your device, the PPG sensor bulb may have burned out. If this occurs, please contact our Customer Support at firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not try to repair the device yourself.
MOCAheart's main sensor is extremely sensitive to liquids. Liquids will damage the sensor and render it unusable. Keep the device away from water and moisture. Do not drop MOCAheart or subject it to strong shocks or vibrations. Do not press the sensor with extreme force.
The internal battery of MOCAheart is not replaceable at home and we don't recommend you attempt any repairs or part replacements by yourself. Please reach out to our Customer Support team at email@example.com with any questions about replacements.
Blood Velocity (MOCA INDEX) is based on your estimated blood velocity measurement, detected by our PPG sensors. It was created with reference to multiple and extensive research studies by institutions including MIT & Stanford that have shown a correlation between the pressure exerted by the heart and the speed at which blood travels through the body. In short, the faster blood flows through your body, the higher your blood pressure should be.
MOCAheart was designed to help users create and maintain a healthy lifestyle. We created Blood Velocity (MOCA INDEX)to be an indicator of your current heart health status. Blood Velocity (MOCA INDEX) does not diagnose a condition or prescribe treatment or medication. Please be responsible and see your doctor as you normally would.
No! MOCAheart is your health companion, designed to support your doctors, not replace to them. It is a tool that empowers you with information about your cardiovascular health. It will record, display, and store your health data, but does not diagnose medical conditions or prescribe treatment or medication. Please be responsible and see your doctor as you normally would.

Aside from smartphones, the MOCAheart app can be used on iPads. Please note that the original interface was designed for iPhones, so the layout might be slightly off. However, measurement accuracy and results are unaffected, so not to worry - the app will still be 100% functional!
On the "Activity" tab, tap the "Add" icon on the top right corner of the screen. Enter the name/phone number of your desired contact and we will populate closely matched results. You’ll then be able to send them an invitation to connect via email or text message.
Sometimes due to poor signal, not enough data was collected by the PPG sensor to analyze your result. Make sure to place your thumbs on the MOCAheart sensor gently, as too much pressure can interrupt the signal.
Yes! After you receive your measurement result, tap the pencil icon on the top right corner of the screen to leave a quick note about your measurement. In addition, you can select from our list of "What are you up to?" statuses to make a note of what you were doing prior to taking your measurement!
Simply request another new code. In the "Settings" screen, navigate to the "Account" section and tap "Verify" to resend the code. The new verification code will be sent to you via email or text message.
Absolutely! In the MOCACARE app, you can send the invitations to contacts, allowing them see your measurements and trends. We firmly believe that MOCAheart is more valuable if you allow close family contacts and/or health providers to view your results.

Your MOCAheart's serial number is located on the device's original packaging. You can also find your device’s serial number by connecting it to your phone, and navigating to the “Control Panel” page in the app.
Follow these simple steps to get started!
1) Insert batteries into MOCACuff's battery slot, located to the left of the screen.
2) Download the MOCACARE app from the iTunes App Store/Google Play.
3) Follow the instructions on the app to create your account.
4) Turn on Bluetooth on both your phone and MOCACuff.

6) Your measurement will sync to the MOCACARE app automatically!
Pairing MOCACuff with your phone is easy! A common mistake is trying to pair MOCACuff via your phone’s Settings. There’s no need to do this, and this actually interferes with the app -- so if you did pair it in your phone’s General Settings, we ask that you go ahead and disconnect the devices and follow the instructions below:
To start, make sure the Bluetooth icon is showing up on MOCACuff’s screen. If it is not, press the “+” button, and it should start blinking.
Turn on Bluetooth on your phone
Open the MOCACARE App on your phone
If there are new measurements to sync, the sync will start automatically. If all measurements have been synced, it’s time to take a new one - once a new measurement is recorded on MOCACuff, it will sync to your phone as long as the App is open.
MOCACuff is a wireless wrist blood pressure monitor that measures pulse rate, systolic, and diastolic blood pressure. Worn around the wrist, it provides comfort and portability while maintaining accuracy. Measurements are synced to the MOCACARE app where users can track their vitals, view trends and changes over time, export their data, and provides a secure chat feature to share measurements with doctors and loved ones.
Blood pressure is the measurement of the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries. Systolic blood pressure (the upper number) represents the pressure in the arteries when the heart is beating. Diastolic blood pressure (the lower number) represents the pressure in the arteries when the heart is at rest. As your blood pressure increases, it indicates stiffness of your arteries (due to a variety of factors, including age, plaque buildup, etc) which increases risk of cardiovascular events.
Blood pressure fluctuations of up to 25 to 30% throughout the day is normal, as your blood pressure is highly dependent on your body's activity level. Your blood pressure upon waking up, for example, is usually lower than during a mid-day measurement, after you've eaten or performed physical activity.
After each measurement, along with your systolic and diastolic blood pressure measurement, you will see a color-coded risk indicator on the right hand side of the screen. Each level corresponds to the American Heart Association's standard blood pressure levels and will allow you to easily understand how your health compares.
Measuring your blood pressure once a day, and at the same time each day (ie. in the morning or at night) is always a good idea. By measuring at the same time each day, you reduce the variables that may cause changes in your reading.
At-home blood pressure monitoring is not a substitute for regular visits to your physician. Instead, it supplements checkups by providing doctors with additional data points to see if treatments are working.
Yes, definitely. MOCACuff can be used by multiple people! Though the device screen itself won’t be able differentiate between different users, the MOCACuff App is able to separate the measurements. The key is to sync results to the correct account after taking each blood pressure measurement - I’ve outlined some pointers below:
To share the device with multiple people:
Create separate accounts for each user on the MOCACARE App
Login to your own account
Take a blood pressure measurement with MOCACuff and immediately sync it to your phone.
Now, either log out of your account and log in to the second user’s account; OR close your app and open the app on the second user’s phone
Have the second user take a BP measurement with MOCACuff and sync it to their account
Repeat this process for as many users as you’d like. Basically, by syncing to the correct user account after each measurement, the result becomes tied to an account and will not be wrongly synced to another user.
MOCACuff can be used without a smartphone and can store up to 100 measurements on its own. However, a smartphone will allow access to additional features, such as visual trends, sharing with doctors/family, exporting reports, and additional storage.
Wear MOCACuff on your wrist, making sure the strap comes in direct contact with your skin. Position your wrist at heart's level and press the "Start" button to begin. Once measurement is complete, your blood pressure reading will appear on the screen, along with a color-coded risk indicator that corresponds to the American Heart Association's standard BP levels.
MOCACuff is a wrist blood pressure monitor, so correct arm positioning is essential to getting the most accurate results. We recommend crossing your arm over your chest, ensuring MOCACuff is at heart's level -- right around the level of your sternum. You can also rest your wrist on a surface in front of you. However, do make sure your arm is propped up so it's aligned with your heart.
MOCACuff uses 2 AAA batteries. The battery compartment is located on the back-left side of the screen. To open it up, simply use your thumb to push down on the cover and slide the battery cover off. The whole piece should come off.
Insert the batteries, slide the battery cover back up, and you’re done!
To sync your blood pressure readings to the MOCACARE App, make sure Bluetooth on both MOCACuff and your smartphone are turned on. Once your measurement is complete, open the MOCACARE app and your reading will start to sync automatically.
You can choose to sync measurements to your phone as frequently (or infrequently) as you like. MOCACuff will store up to 99 measurements on the device, and you can toggle through them by clicking on the "History" button and scrolling through your measurements using the "Start" button.
Unlike most Bluetooth devices, you don't need to pair MOCACuff via your phone's Settings. As long as Bluetooth on your phone and MOCACuff are turned on, and the MOCACARE app is open, your measurements will sync automatically :)
To sync your blood pressure readings to Apple Health Kit, navigate to the MOCACARE app's Profile settings, and tap "Sync with Apple Health" on the bottom of the screen. In Apple Health Kit, under "Sources," navigate to MOCACARE and make sure Systolic and Diastolic Blood Pressure are turned on.
Aside from smartphones, the MOCAheart app can be used on iPads. Please note that the original interface was designed for iPhones, so the layout might be slightly off. However, measurement accuracy and results are unaffected, so the app will still be 100% functional.
