Setting the Pace, Pioneering the Future
One of our core principles is innovating medical technology in the field of cardiology. Since our founder Max Schaldach developed the first German pacemaker in 1963, we have paved the way for pioneering innovations. BIOTRONIK places utmost importance on research and development in order to continuously improve the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cardiovascular and endovascular disease. In our Berlin headquarters alone, one out of every five employees work in R&D, ensuring that medical technology keeps pace with the interests and needs of future patients and physicians.
Our pacemakers, implantable defibrillators and remote monitoring technologies offer solutions of the highest quality to people suffering from cardiac arrhythmias.
BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring – Reliable Telemedicine
We were the first to combine medical technology with telecommunication to enable the automatic, daily transfer of patients’ clinical and device data to their physician. Our technology remains the most reliable, effective and convenient remote monitoring system on the market. Millions of patients, physicians and clinics worldwide rely on Home Monitoring.
Closed Loop Simulation for Pacemakers and ICDs
The most advanced system to regulate cardiac activity; Closed Loop Stimulation is used in our pacemakers and ICDs. It reacts to patients’ physical and mental state. This one-of-a-kind system optimizes patients’ heartbeats based on neurological information, allowing the device to react to mental activity or stress.
ProMRI – Safe MRI Scans for Cardiac Device Patients
With ProMRI technology, BIOTRONIK enables patients with cardiac rhythm management implants to safely undergo MRI scans. We offer the world’s largest portfolio of pacemakers, defibrillators and leads approved to undergo MRIs.
DX Atrial Sensing for Patients with Atrial Fibrillation
The DX system is the world’s only single-chamber defibrillator that can detect atrial fibrillation. Using only a single lead, the system can precisely detect rhythm disturbances in the heart’s ventricle and atrium. The DX system broadens the therapy options available to patients while increasing their safety.
Fractal Coating – Innovation for Leads
We first developed fractal coating in the 1990s and continue to perfect it. Fractal coating optimizes leads’ electrical surface, thereby maximizing their sensing and pacing capabilities. BIOTRONIK remains the only manufacturer of these unique leads.
