About

The world's smallest, longest-lasting wireless MRI pacemaker1*

Designed with a physician-preferred size and physiologic shape,2 the Assurity MRI™ pacemaker offers premium device features in a 1.5T and 3T MR Conditional system, without compromising device performance or longevity.

Assurity is among the thinnest devices2 on the market — a specification that gives you the option to create a smaller incision and pocket size.3

Size and Longevity

The small size of Assurity — combined with its outstanding longevity — may mean your patients could experience fewer complications and greater comfort. In particular, greater longevity reduces the chance of potential device replacement (with potentially less risk for infection and complications).4

Assurity features include:

Assurity MRI pacemaker offers 10-year device longevity.
Assurity MRI pacemaker comes with an industry-leading 10-year warranty.
Assurity MRI pacemaker is 10cc in volume.
With 6mm thickness, Assurity MRI pacemaker is among the thinnest devices on the market.
Assurity MRI pacemaker offers 10-year device longevity.

MRI Ready

The Assurity MRI pacemaker and Tendril MRI™ and Tendril STS pacing leads allow full body, 1.5 and 3T MRI scans.

  • Meets industry-standard MRI testing parameters
  • Capable of full body 1.5T and 3T MRI imaging scans
  • SJM MRI Activator™ handheld device helps reduce required steps before and after scanning, resulting in more efficient workflow than conventional MRI pacemakers

The Tendril MRI, LPA1200M pacing lead is only 1.5T MR Conditional when used with the Assurity MRI pacemaker.

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
