The PURE EP™ System from BioSig Technologies™ was designed to improve the clinical information for electrophysiology (EP) studies and cardiac catheter ablation – procedures to test the electrical activity of the heart to find where an abnormal heartbeat originates, and then is destroyed.
Drug therapies often ineffective
Procedures for ablation need improvement
Poor signal quality may lead to:
Uncertainty in ablation targets
|Records raw unfiltered signal||Enables operator to focus on specific areas of interest in real-time without loss of information|
|Double the bandwidth, much greater resolution||Enables system to show critical high frequency and low amplitude information which may reduce need for multiple procedures|
|Filters and noise cancellation in software||Allows extraction of useful clinical information in real-time|
|Real-time visualization||May save money by reducing procedure time|
"The improved resolution may translate to better ability to pick up specific signals and relate them to specific structure and substrate."
"The dynamic range of the system is larger - likely will translate into better ability to see both large and small (frequency and amplitude) signals with similar resolutions. This is a major problem with present systems, where in order to see smaller signals, we have to amplify the signals, and in doing so, we lose the ability to see larger signals without saturating these signals."
"The display options are also more intuitive and flexible. For example, different filtering can be applied to the same signal and displayed as separate, simultaneous signals. Presently this is not possible with the existing systems to my knowledge."
