The device comes with a cellular-based home monitoring system that allows physicians to detect a range of heart-related events, including silent arrhythmias.
Tech out of Toronto allows researchers to make mature tissue from human cardiac cell samples for the first time, which could eventually lead to biodegradable surgical patches that remain in the body.
A tiny doughnut-shaped chip that attaches to the end of a catheter could improve the way doctors peek inside our circulatory systems.
Rhythmia receives FDA clearance in cardiac catheter ablations to diagnose or treat heartbeat abnormalities.
Bionym's Nymi attempts to rid you of the burden of remembering passwords, pins, and carrying around key cards.

Harvard researchers create a heart patch using gels and 3D-printing technology that could someday lessen reliance on transplant surgery.
Biomedical engineers out of Johns Hopkins and Stony Brook say gentle beams of light -- instead of electric jolts -- could be used to treat arrhythmias in the near future.
Unlike existing surgical adhesives, the new glue works even in the presence of blood and seals within five seconds of exposure to UV light.
MIT researchers can measure someone's pulse just by watching them on video. The new method, which picks up slight head movements, could help detect cardiac events.
A team of engineers at Stanford says it's possible to power a tiny, implantable cardiac device using radio waves instead of batteries.
