Around 115,000 people over the age of 65 in Austria are affected by heart valve disease. However, most illnesses go unrecognized because lack of awareness often makes the symptoms accepted as a normal part of aging, although they can be life threatening. In many cases, valvular heart disease is therefore not recognized and treated, although a range of treatments are available for affected patients. That's why in 2019 started the association "My heart valve – Association for Information on Valvular Heart Diseases".
“My heart valve – Association for Information on Valvular Heart Diseases” was new on the market and needed a corporate design and a barrier-free website from the scratch. Their mission is to increase awareness of valvular heart disease, treatment methods and early detection and to bring people together and help those affected.
This is why we developed a new, user friendly website for the organization where all people with such health issues and their relatives can openly speak about the disease and its aftermath, sharing their experiences and stories.
