Partners Pave Path To Better Diagnosis & Treatment Of Arrhythmia

By Mat Dirjish

Acutus Medical and BIOTRONIK are partnering to provide a comprehensive portfolio of electrophysiology, mapping, ablation, and accessory products for catheter-based treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. The partnership centers around the Acutus AcQMap system with SuperMap multi-mode mapping capabilities.

Reportedly, the AcQMap system is the only commercially available non-contact mapping system that can quickly and reliably map both stable and unstable rhythms. This allows electrophysiologists to see changes in conduction during the procedure, thereby making it easier to customize a working therapy.

The system optimizes visibility and helps to map and guide the treatment of any arrhythmia, simple to highly complex, in under three minutes. Under terms of the agreement, Acutus expects to market a range of BIOTRONIK EP ablation catheters and diagnostic/accessory products under a private label.

One objective of the alliance is to optimize patient care with an array of devices and monitors that link together digitally. This is possible using BIOTRONIK’s Home Monitoring network with Acutus’ system in order to enable fully automatic transmission of real-time data between patients, physicians, and technicians.

The partners believe that a secure digital network across both cardiac rhythm management and electrophysiology mapping and ablation devices has the potential to optimize care by providing physicians with high levels of connectivity and remote monitoring benefits before, during, and after ablation, follow-up visits, and other episodes of care, including digital telemedicine.
