Health Optimisation Devices

Health Optimisation devices are medically approved technologies that stimulate your Body Bud’s self-regulating, self-healing mechanisms, directly addressing the root cause of your specific challenges. This includes delivering a tailored sequence of high-tech pre-therapies (in the clinic and/or at home) alongside personalized high-impact lifestyle tweaks.

Chronic Heart Failure (CHF) is a serious and complex condition, which can be difficult to manage. Despite best-practice guideline-directed medical therapy and traditional device-based therapies such as cardiac resynchronization therapy, many patients experience deteriorating symptoms that diminish their quality of life.

Impulse Dynamics has developed Optimizer Smart and its predecessor, the Optimizer Smart Mini, with Cardiac Contractility Modulation (CCM) technology to ease the symptoms of CHF. The device is designed to strengthen and help the heart cells contract more forcefully, enabling it to deliver more blood and oxygen to the body. The implantable device, which is similar in size to a pacemaker and has a 20-year battery life, was awarded Breakthrough Technology designation by the FDA and a unanimous positive vote from an FDA Advisory Panel.

The Optimizer Smart system is surgically implanted into a small pocket in the upper chest under light sedation, along with commercially available pacemaker leads that are placed into the heart’s right ventricular septum. The device is custom-programmed for each patient and charged one hour per week via an external charger.
