At the 2011 EHRA Europace Congress in Madrid, Spain, Dr. Jose Merino, Director of the Arrhythmia–Electrophysiology Research Unit at Hospital Universitario La Paz in Madrid was asked to host a Live-Case presentation of the CGCI system. The presentation consisted of a cardiac mapping procedure using the CGCI platform. The procedure was simulcast to approximately 5000 cardiologists and other EHRA attendees in Madrid, Spain, Leipzig, Germany as well as select locations in the Netherlands.
“The ‘Live Case’ simulcast represents the rapidly growing interest in our robotic CGCI system”, said Josh Shachar, CIO of Neuro-Kinesis. “We look forward to commercializing the CGCI technology so that we can apply its many benefits to improving the lives of patients suffering from cardiac arrhythmia as well as other conditions and in other fields such as gastroenterology, neurology, and gynecology.”
Created in 1976, the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) is a branch of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and serves as Europe’s leading organization in the field of arrhythmias and electrophysiology.
