New Cardiac Diagnostic Monitoring Device to be Unveiled at AHA 2009

November 12, 2009 – A prototype of the Cardiac Diagnostic Monitoring (CDM) device, called the Mobile Patient ECG Telemetry System, or MPETS, will be shown at the 2009 American Heart Association (AHA) Scientific Sessions, Nov. 15-17, in Orlando, Fla.

At booth 1663 in the Orange County Convention Center, IntriCon/Datrix will introduce the MPETS, a next-generation wireless outpatient monitoring tool, which uses a proven automatic arrhythmia detection algorithm.

The companies said they leveraged Datrix’s cardiac monitoring capabilities and IntriCon’s marketing abilities to develop a new wireless cardiac monitoring device that allows for more patient comfort and the ability to identify asymptomatic cardiac events including atrial fibrillation, brady arrhythmia, tachy arrhythmia and cardiac pause.

In August 2009, IntriCon acquired Datrix, an Escondido, Calif.-based supplier of CDM devices, to leading medical OEMs. IntriCon’s capabilities combined with Datrix’s, creates a platform for IntriCon to expand into other physiological monitoring markets. And adding the wireless outpatient telemetry capability gives the company access to the emerging biotelemetry space.
