About

IMPLANT TODAY. MRI READY TOMORROW.

The Assurity MRI™ pacemaker and Tendril MRI™ and Tendril STS™ pacing leads allow full body, 1.5T and 3T MRI scans.*† When the Assurity MRI pacemaker is combined with Tendril STS or Tendril MRI pacing leads there is no wait time between implant and MRI scan readiness. The Assurity MRI pacemaker provides an option that can help patients receive a timely diagnosis so that they can get the care they need, when they need it.

% OF MRI SCANS ARE URGENT OR EMERGENT:

MRI Ready

Assurity MRI pacemaker and Tendril STS lead now give you 3T MRI options you didn't have before -- immediate access to MRI scans without compromising device performance.** Eliminate the six-week wait time for MRI scans that Medtronic, Boston Scientific, and Biotronik recommend.2-4 Will your patient be ready?

  • Meets industry-standard MRI testing parameters
  • Shortest delay between implantation and scan feasibility on the market for pacemakers.2-4
  • MR Conditional for full body 1.5T and 3T MRI scans*
  • SJM MRI Activator™ handheld device helps reduce required steps before and after scanning, resulting in more efficient workflow than conventional MRI pacemakers

Wireless Remote Monitoring

The Assurity MRI pacemaker assists you in monitoring patient disease status and device performance daily with automatic remote monitoring.

Standard of Care

As the new standard of care,†† wireless remote monitoring significantly improves patient outcomes and reduces hospital admissions:

Assurity MRI pacemaker has shown a 27% reduction in all-cause mortality over 3 years.
Assurity MRI pacemaker has shown a 36% reduction in cardiac or device-related emergency rooms or hospital visits.
Assurity MRI pacemaker has shown 24 times greater probability of survival.
Assurity MRI pacemaker has shown an 18% reduction in mean length of stay, with an estimated savings of $1,793 per stay.

Cost-Effective

  • Reimbursement available for remote monitoring
  • Remote monitoring can reduce spending over 3 years by 9% ($4,356 per patient)5
  • Automatic scheduling of remote monitoring lets your clinic schedule and bill all appropriate device checks
