Makers of “One-of-a-Kind” ICD Honored in Minn.

Medtronic was honored at a ceremony this week that recognizes the best and brightest technology innovators in Minnesota. In the category of Medical Technology — Devices, Diagnostics and Equipment, the 2006 Tekne Awards selected the Medtronic for its Chronicle(R) ICD, a first-of-its-kind implantable heart failure device that can transmit a patients’ information from their home to their physicians via a standard phone line.

"Each year, it becomes increasingly difficult to select recipients from such an immensely talented group of finalists," said Kate Rubin, president, MHTA. "This year’s recipients have truly proven their leadership and dedication to technological development, which ultimately improves the quality of life for Minnesotans and helps secure Minnesota’s place as a global player in technology-based markets."

In its seventh year, the Awards are presented by the Minnesota High Tech Association (MHTA) and Minnesota Technology, Inc. (MTI), in partnership with LifeScience Alley and recognize companies and individuals who have shown superior leadership, development, commercialization and management of technology in Minnesota.
