Lake Oswego, Ore. – May 13, 2009 – BIOTRONIK, Inc. reaffirmed today the company’s technological leadership in heart monitoring devices by introducing the Lumax 540 with all-new pacing technology features.

Building on the already successful Lumax line of products, the Lumax 540 uses a unique pacing technology to automatically monitor patient’s status on a daily basis. The company’s newest product also is equipped with BIOTRONIK’s exclusive Home Monitoring® system, for added confidence at all hours and locations. New efficiency achievements yield the longest reliable life of any product on the market when utilizing all device capabilities.

“It is difficult to recommend a device for young people because it needs to work harder and adapt to their lifestyle,” said Dr. Larry Chinitz, M.D., Director of Electrophysiology at NYU Medical Center. “With extended battery life and Home Monitoring®, young people can live a totally active life and still receive early detection of clinical events.”

“We are proud to guide the market with technological leadership in patient comfort and safety,” said Rex Richmond, Vice President of Marketing Communications for BIOTRONIK, Inc. “The Lumax 5 Series is an adaptable product due to its ability to restore confidence for active people.
