About BioSig Technologies
BioSig Technologies is a medical technology company commercializing a proprietary biomedical signal processing platform designed to improve signal fidelity and uncover the full range of ECG and intra-cardiac signals (www.biosig.com).
The Company's first product, PURE EP(T.M.) System, is a novel signal processing and acquisition platform designed to extract advanced diagnostic and therapeutic data that enhances physician workflow and increases throughput. PURE EP(T.M.) was engineered to address the limitations of existing E.P. technologies by empowering physicians with superior signals and actionable insights.
To date, over 75 physicians have completed over 2500 patient cases with the PURE EP(T.M.) System. The Company is in a national commercial launch of the PURE EP(T.M.) System. The technology is in regular use in some of the country's leading centers of excellence, including Mayo Clinic, and Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute at St. David's Medical Center.
Clinical data acquired by the PURE EP(T.M.) System in a multi-center study at centers of excellence including Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute at St. David's Medical Center was recently published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology and is available electronically with open access via the Wiley Online Library. Study results showed 93% consensus across the blinded reviewers with a 75% overall improvement in intracardiac signal quality and confidence in interpreting PURE EP(T.M.) signals over conventional sources.
