The recently FDA-approved COGNIS CRT-D and the TELIGEN ICD from Boston Scientific are among the smallest and thinnest high-energy devices at 32.5 cc and 31.5 cc respectively, while less than 10 mm thick. Both devices offer extended battery longevity over previous company devices, self-correcting software and improved programming technology.
COGNIS and TELIGEN are built on entirely new platforms, including device hardware, software and programming interface. Both devices offer a redundant hardware system called SafetyCore, which is designed to provide lifesaving shock therapy and basic pacing functionality in the unlikely event of a system error. The products employ digital signal processing and are equipped with increased levels of digital memory.
