Biotronik reports positive data from Home Monitoring trial

19th July 2010

Biotronik has presented data from a new trial of Home Monitoring, its wireless remote monitoring system for patients with cardiac devices.

The Trust trial was conducted at 102 sites in the US and involved 1,450 patients, allowing the company to gauge the effectiveness of Home Monitoring in managing and reporting on the status of heart disease sufferers.

It was found that use of the system led to a decrease in the number of clinic follow-up visits, as well as improvements in the early detection of patient clinical events such as asymptomatic atrial fibrillation.

Kevin Mitchell, Biotronik’s vice-president for clinical studies, said the study was indicative of the firm’s commitment to using research to underpin endpoint conclusions.

He added: “We strive to further advance patient care by exploring unanswered questions and unmet needs.”

Earlier this month, the company announced the launch of Pulsar-18, a new medical stent for use in treating long disease segments in superficial femoral arteries.
