Medtronic said Monday that it has launched its new external heart monitor, the SEEQ Mobile Cardiac Telemetry System, in the U.S. The system received 510(k) clearance from the FDA in February.
The wire-free SEEQ monitor can be worn for up to 30 days to detect and diagnose the cause of irregular heartbeats in symptomatic patients. And it is water-resistant, allowing patients to be continuously monitored while exercising and showering, Medtronic notes.
