Key Result 1

Subjects were able to sweep a statisically greater area (average of 1.6 m2 or 17.2 ft2) while in CLS as compared with accelerometer (XL) or no rate sensor (DDD).¹ The distance walked was not statistically different for CLS as compared to XL or DDD. Heart rates obtained during testing in CLS were statistically higher than the mean heart rates obtained during testing in XL or DDD.¹ Overall, CLS provides benefits over accelerometer (XL) and no rate sensor (DDD) in patients requiring ≥80% pacing. Specifically, subjects were able to sweep more area, had a reduced prevalence of OH as indicated by a closer to ‘normal’ heart rate, during both the walk and sweep activities.¹

Key Result 2

Use of CLS resulted in over a 75% reduction in the prevalence of orthostatic hypotension after standing 1 minute as compared with XL and DDD.
