BioSig’s Manuscript Accepted to IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference 2019
Santa Monica, CA, May 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioSig Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSGM), a medical device company developing a proprietary biomedical signal processing platform designed to address unmet needs for the electrophysiology (EP) marketplace, today announced that the manuscript entitled “Evaluation of Real Time Catheter Tissue Contact using Unipolar Intracardiac Signal Morphology” has been accepted to the 41st International Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference (EMBC), to be held in Berlin, Germany from July 23 – 27, 2019.
BioSig’s latest manuscript is discussing one of the most challenging objectives during EP studies – to achieve and maintain optimal contact between the catheter tip and myocardial tissue. The studies conducted by BioSig evaluated the morphology of unipolar intracardiac signals as an additional real time marker for contact evaluation and concluded that there was a correlation between the PR (for atria) and ST (for ventricles) segments and catheter contact force applied to the myocardium.
“We are very honored that our latest manuscript has again been recognized by the global biomedical and scientific community. We are fully committed to contributing our knowledge to develop better treatments for complex heart rhythm disturbances, and look forward to new findings, as we advance our R&D and clinical activities with the leading centers in the country,” commented Kenneth L. Londoner, Chairman and CEO of BioSig Technologies, Inc.
About EMBC 2019
The overarching theme for EMBC 2019 is “Biomedical engineering ranging from wellness to intensive care”. Consistent with this theme, the event will feature plenary keynotes from leading academic and industrial scientists, who will present aspects of innovation and translational engineering in biomedicine. The scientific tracks will cover the standard topics of the EMBS technical committees. Beside the scientific sessions, the congress exhibition will show biomedical companies, start-ups, biomedical institutes, universities, and provide networking opportunities for engineers, clinicians, other scientists, entrepreneurs and students. Cutting-edge research and innovation in biomedical engineering, healthcare technology and medical informatics will all be covered in this large conference.
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 technology company developing a proprietary biomedical signal processing platform designed to improve the electrophysiology (EP) marketplace (www.biosig.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™ System. The technology has been developed to address an unmet need in a large and growing market.
The Company’s first product, PURE EP™ 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 potentially deadly arrhythmias, Atrial Fibrillation and Ventricular Tachycardia. BioSig has partnered with Minnetronix on technology development and received FDA 510(k) clearance for the PURE EP™ System in August 2018.
