CardioMEMS is a medical device company that has developed and is commercializing a proprietary wireless sensing and communication technology for the human body. Our technology platform is designed to improve the management of severe chronic cardiovascular diseases such as heart failure and aneurysms. Our miniature wireless sensors can be implanted using minimally invasive techniques and transmit cardiac output, blood pressure and heart rate data that are critical to the management of patients. Due to their small size, durability, and lack of wires and batteries, our sensors are designed to be permanently implanted into the cardiovascular system. Using radiofrequency, or RF, energy, our sensors transmit real-time data to an external electronics module, which then communicates this information to the patient’s physician.

Atlanta-based CardioMEMS is releasing the results of a two-year pivotal clinical study of its CHAMPION heart failure pressure measurement system on May 31 at the Heart Failure Congress 2010 in Berlin, Germany. The CHAMPION trial revealed that proactively monitoring pulmonary artery pressure on an ongoing basis resulted in a 30% reduction in hospitalization rates in patients who experience symptoms of heart failure with mild exertion.
