MicroPort CRM Announces European Launch of Alizea TM and Borea TM Pacemakers With Bluetooth® Connectivity and Streamlined Remote Monitoring

Share

MicroPort CRM, a pioneering company in the field of Cardiac Rhythm management, headquartered in France with global operations,announced today the European launch of AlizeaTM and BoreaTM pacemakers after receiving the CE mark under the new Medical Device Regulation (MDR - 2017/745). The devices are equipped with Bluetooth®1 technology for streamlined remote monitoring when paired with the SmartView ConnectTM home monitor.

AlizeaTM and BoreaTM connected pacemakers allow cardiologists to monitor the devices remotely, saving patients the need to travel to hospital for a simple routine examination and thus reducing burden on the healthcare system. Today, with more than 500 000 patients per year implanted with a pacemaker across Europe, connected cardiac technologies are needed more than ever.

"MicroPort CRM has always been committed to providing medical devices with the most advanced technology and features to improve patient outcomes and reduce the burden on the healthcare system”, said Benoît Clinchamps, President of MicroPort CRM. “AlizeaTM and BoreaTM pacemakers, associated with SmartView ConnectTM home monitor, are a perfect example of our objective to improve the management of healthcare by reducing hospital visits, while ensuring continuity of monitoring and follow-up. These new pacemakers keep patients connected to their clinical team with secured and streamlined communication.”

The devices are provided with a smart home monitor, SmartView ConnectTM, which is to be placed at the patient’s bedside. The monitor allows cardiologists to automatically and regularly receive detailed reports on the functioning of the system, as well as timely alerts and transmissions triggered by the patients when they have symptoms. The SmartView ConnectTM home monitor is equipped with an interface that has been designed to be suitable for an elderly patient population, providing greater autonomy and involvement for this demographic regarding their therapy.

AlizeaTM and BoreaTM with Bluetooth® capability have been designed without compromising on size and battery longevity. Their volume is only 11cc and the projected lifespan is 13 years with full feature set on, including remote monitoring, saving many patients from having to experience a pacemaker change. This newest generation of pacemakers also includes the more advanced features developed by MicroPort CRM, including:

  • AutoMRITM, which automatically protects the patient when he or she has to undergo an MRI examination, whether with a 1.5 or 3 Tesla scanner3
  • SafeRTM, a pacing mode reducing unnecessary ventricular pacing that has been proven to prevent onset of atrial fibrillation4
  • SAMTM, a Sleep Apnea Monitoring feature which reveals a largely under-diagnosed disease with significant cardiac comorbidities such as atrial fibrillation5

About cardiac pacemakers
Cardiac pacemakers are implanted in patients with an abnormally low heart rate (bradycardia), preventing them from leading a normal life. They are implanted under the skin, in the chest area, and are connected to the heart by transvenous leads that conduct electrical impulses to pace the heart and restore a normal heart rhythm. Patients implanted with a pacemaker must be regularly monitored by their cardiologist to ensure that the pacing system is working correctly.
