Subcutaneous String Defibrillator*
* Development stage product - not for sale
The ISSD introduces a new dimension in subcutaneous cardioverter defibrillator.
Completely unitary and flexible with an innovative, low-profile, string-like shape, it’s the first rechargeable ICD, with secure BLE communication for easy monitoring and interaction with other implanted devices.
With no leads within the heart, ISSD implantation is minimally invasive and can be performed on an out-patient basis, without fluoroscopy.
With leads placed alongside the sternum and the side, the device is easily inserted below the ribs, with only 3 small incisions required and no need to create a pulse generator pocket.
This results in minimal anatomical protrusion, for improved patient comfort and aesthetic appearance.
