BioSig Technologies Announces Acceptance of Paper for the 40th International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society
Paper regarding unipolar intracardiac signals as a parameter for catheter contact to be presented at EMBC ‘18 July 17-21 in Honolulu, Hawaii
Santa Monica, CA, May 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioSig Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: BSGM), a medical device company developing a proprietary biomedical signal processing platform designed to address an unmet technology need for the $4.6 billion electrophysiology (EP) marketplace, today announced that its submission entitled, “Unipolar Intracardiac Signal Morphology as a Parameter for Catheter Contact Evaluation” was accepted as a 1-page paper for presentation at the 40th International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBC 2018).
BioSig’s paper discusses a very important problem common for current electrophysiology (EP) studies: contact between catheter tip and myocardial tissue affects both the accuracy of cardiac maps and the efficacy of ablation energy delivery. Our findings suggest that the morphology of a unipolar signal obtained by using our PURE EP(TM) System can provide incremental information in contact evaluation.
“It is an honor for our findings to be accepted for presentation by the world’s largest professional organization for biomedical engineers. BioSig continues to collaborate with the best electrophysiologists in our field and strives toward advancing science. These findings can potentially lead to more effective ablation strategies, and ultimately, and more importantly, better outcomes for patients,” commented Kenneth L. Londoner, Chairman and CEO of BioSig Technologies, Inc.
About EMBC 2018
The IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society is hosting its 40th International Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference in Honolulu, Hawaii from July 17-21, 2018 at the Hawaii Convention Center. The theme of the meeting is “Learning from the Past, Looking to the Future”, inspired by the 40th anniversary of the world’s largest international biomedical engineering meeting. Consistent with the theme, there will be plenary keynotes from leading industrial and academic scientists, who will give forward looking visions as well as historical perspectives on the field. A broad array of scientific tracks will cover diverse topics of cutting-edge research and innovation in biomedical engineering, healthcare technology R&D, translational clinical research, technology transfer and entrepreneurship, and biomedical engineering education. In addition to the high-profile keynotes, the conference program will feature mini symposia, workshops, invited sessions, oral and poster sessions, sessions for students and young professions, sessions for clinicians and entrepreneurs, and exhibits from vendors and universities.
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is world's largest association of technical professionals with more than 420,000 members in over 160 countries around the world. Its objectives are the educational and technical advancement of electrical and electronic engineering, telecommunications, computer engineering and allied disciplines.
About BioSig Technologies
BioSig Technologies is a medical device company developing a proprietary biomedical signal processing technology designed to improve the $4.6 billion electrophysiology (EP) marketplace (www.biosigtech.com). Led by a proven management team and a veteran, independent Board of Directors, Los Angeles-based BioSig Technologies is preparing to commercialize its PURE EP(TM) System. The technology has been developed to address an unmet need in a large and growing market.
The Company’s first product, PURE EP(TM) System, is a novel cardiac signal acquisition and display system which is engineered to assist electrophysiologists in clinical decision making during procedures to diagnose and treat patients with abnormal heart rates and rhythms. BioSig’s main goal is to deliver technology to improve upon catheter ablation treatments for the prevalent and deadly arrhythmias, Atrial Fibrillation and Ventricular Tachycardia. BioSig has partnered with Minnetronix on technology development and is working toward FDA 510(k) clearance for the PURE EP(TM) System.
