BIOTRONIK has released in Europe a new cardiac device programmer, the Renamic. The unit is smaller than any other comparable device, and is to be used by physicians and company reps to adjust the settings of BIOTRONIK’s implanted cardiac devices.
Its new user interface has been optimized with improved use of spacing and an intuitive color coding. The touchscreen can either be used with the stylet—or with any other tool, from fingers to ordinary pens. Besides being the smallest programming device in its class, Renamic features special compartments for accessories such as the power cord, so they can be stored within the device during transportation. To ensure maximum compatibility with other systems and technologies, Renamic offers multiple options for data transmission, including Bluetooth®, Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) and wireless LAN (Wi-Fi®). Furthermore, Renamic is already prepared to accommodate BIOTRONIK SafeSync, which allows for wireless interrogation of the implanted cardiac devices.
The programmer is used for initial programming, reprogramming and testing of implantable pacemakers, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices after implantation.
