Partnership to provide catheter-based treatment products for cardiac arrhythmias

Acutus Medical and Biotronik have forged an alliance to provide a portfolio of electrophysiology, mapping, ablation and accessory products for catheter-based treatment of cardiac arrhythmias across select markets, including Europe and Asia.

At the centre of the new Biotronik/Acutus Alliance for Electrophysiology lies the Acutus AcQMap system with SuperMap multi-mode mapping capabilities. The AcQMap system is a non-contact mapping system that can map both stable and unstable rhythms, allowing electrophysiologists to see changes in conduction during the procedure, providing a solution to better customise therapy.

The system optimises visibility and helps to map and guide the treatment of any arrhythmia – from simple to highly complex – in under three minutes. Under terms of the agreement, Acutus expects to market under private label a range of Biotronik EP ablation catheters and diagnostic/accessory products to most major international markets.

One of the objectives of the alliance is to optimise care for arrhythmia patients with an array of devices and monitors that would be linked digitally. This could happen through BIOTRONIK’s Home Monitoring network with Acutus’ system in order to enable fully automatic transmission of real-time data between patients, physicians and technicians. A secure digital network across both cardiac rhythm management (CRM) and electrophysiology (EP) mapping and ablation devices has the potential to optimise 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 digitally supported telemedicine.

Studies have shown that proactive monitoring through Home Monitoring helps to significantly reduce hospitalisation, stroke and mortality.

Vince Burgess, president and CEO of Acutus Medical, said: “Healthcare systems around the world are facing continuous pressure to provide more targeted care for patients with better outcomes and reduced costs. We are at the forefront of equipping electrophysiologists with the technology they need to deliver advanced and individualised ablation therapy – more efficiently. We believe this International Alliance has the potential to vault Acutus to the forefront of this important market.”

Dr Hans-Juergen Wildau, segment head of EP & sensors at Biotronik, said: “As arrhythmias become more common, unprecedented access to real-time data will be integral to improving diagnosis and care. We believe pairing Biotronik’s cardiac monitoring portfolio with Acutus’ innovative mapping technology will give EP specialists the edge in therapy guidance systems.”
