The world’s first Autonomous Leadless Pacing System
incorporating a unique inertial energy harvesting technology synchronized with cardiac rhythm.
ALPS – Rethinking Cardiac Rhythm Management
CAIRDAC has developed the only pacemaker incorporating a revolutionary energy harvesting module capable of powering the device with no energy limitation.
A Full Paradigm Shift in Cardiac Rhythm Management
Since the 60’s implantable pacemakers have been powered by a primary battery which needs to be replaced upon depletion; although leadless pacemakers have taken a big leap forward in the past few years, the same problem applies to leadless devices as their battery capacity is even more reduced due to miniaturization. Replacement or re-implantation of a new leadless device is a complicated procedure and an expensive solution for patients and healthcare systems.
Today, device longevity is the major weak point of current leadless pacemakers as they need to be replaced on average every 5 years becoming a complicated, risky and costly solution for patients and hospitals.
AND there is NO leadless solution for Dual Chamber Stimulation.
Interview with Professor
Wouter Oosterlinck M.D, P.hD.
Professor Oosterlinck, M.D, P.hD., at the University Hospitals Leuven in Belgium gives us his professional opinion on how the power of the self-sustainable energy supply of ALPS addresses the currently unmet fundamental needs in cardiac rhythm disorders. From device longevity, to dual-chamber stimulation and lower risks of infection, find out how ALPS is reshaping the world of leadless pacemakers.
