SYNOPSIS OF THE STUDY
- The primary aim of this study is to confirm the safety and efficacy of the BIOMONITOR III – the third generation of an implantable cardiac monitor that automatically detects and monitors heart rhythms of a patient.
- Multi-centre, international, non-randomised, open-label, prospective study conducted across about 30 sites in Australia
- Enrolled participants will be implanted with BIOMONITOR III, attend follow up visits and connect to BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring
- New insertion tool called FIT OneStip will be used to implant BIOMONITOR II which will make the procedure faster and less invasive
- Enrolment target was reached in February 2021
