Schwarzer Cardiotek GmbH today announced that it has been awarded a research and development grant by the Zentrale Innovationsprogramm Mittelstand (ZIM) a federal program that supports innovation of German technology companies. The grant was awarded for a development project that aims to develop a novel noise filtering technology using artificial intelligence. Electrophysiology procedures can be impaired by interfering noise created from adjacent devices in the cathlab environment. Schwarzer Cardiokek will create an algorithm using artificial intelligence to detect such interferences in its signals. It will then apply a process of continuous learning to predict and filter these signals thereby creating superior, clear signal quality.
”The key advantage of our EP-TRACER platform has always been our outstanding signal quality. With this project we will further enhance our signal quality and thereby deliver even greater precision during diagnostic and therapeutic EP procedures”, explains Frank-Peter Klein, CEO of Schwarzer Cardiotek.
“As a quality leader in electrophysiology, we are always striving to augment our diagnostic capabilities and built intelligent algorithms that inform and support physicians, reduce the risk of complications and improve efficiency in the EP-lab. This project directly contributes to our mission and we are excited that the grant committee recognizes the potential of our project”, continues Klein.
