ECG Belt

Purpose of Study

The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the ECG Belt system as an additional diagnostic tool for optimizing final placement of the LV lead while satisfying the EHRA/HRS published guidelines for LV lead implantation, and for optimizing pacing programming parameters in CRT patients. The ECG belt system will provide real-time on-site feedback on CRT efficacy at the time of implant and/or follow-up.

The ECG Belt system may help physicians to optimize selection of LV lead implant site and/or choose optimal LV pacing vectors and other device parameters post-implant.
