BIOTRONIK has unveiled its new heart stimulator for use during cardiac catheterization procedures. The Qubic Stim is replacing the company’s previous generations of its universal heart stimulator (UHS) with a smaller size and a new intuitive interface.
The device includes both touchscreen and regular button controls, with the display anticipating and showing menus most applicable to the physician at any given time. It also features personalized, multi-channel protocols.
From the announcement:
“I am very pleased to see that Qubic Stim, which I had the opportunity to use during a market observation, has now received CE approval,” commented Dr. Leif-Hendrik Boldt, Charité Campus Virchow, Berlin, Germany. “Having steady control over the heart’s rhythm is important to a successful cath lab practice. An easy-to-use, multi-channel stimulator, Qubic Stim can be easily integrated into my practice, ultimately benefiting my patients.”
“Qubic Stim represents an excellent compilation of features that have been developed over three decades, and really takes physicians’ daily needs into account,” commented Christoph Böhmer, President International at BIOTRONIK. “We are proud to offer the first in a new series of electrophysiology external devices with enhanced user friendliness.”
