Cardionet,IMEC Sign Multi-Year Development Agreement for Cardiac Monitoring Devices

CardioNet has signed a multi-year agreement with IMEC and its Dutch affiliate Holst Center to develop new cardiac monitoring devices.

The partnership, over the next 18 months, will leverage CardioNet's proprietary algorithms and back-end infrastructure, and IMEC's ultra-low power ECG readout application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) with integrated motion artifact reduction.

The new devices, which will also use Denmark-based Danish Electronics, Light & Acoustics' (Delta) smallest ECG electrode patch, are expected to greatly improve the patient experience during monitoring, and to be a major advance in the field of remote cardiac monitoring, claims CardioNet.

IMEC president and CEO Luc Van den hove said previously, CardioNet has introduced the first mobile outpatient cardiac telemetry system, Mobile Cardiac Outpatient Telemetry (MCOT), for the diagnosis and monitoring of cardiac arrhythmias or heart rhythm disorders.

"Today, CardioNet is once again pioneering the field, by developing innovative solutions in terms of user experience and performance," hove added.
