Medical Device Design Expert in Cardiac Electrophysiology
IMS ExpertServices sought a medical device design expert for a patent infringement case involving pacemakers or cardiac rhythm management devices. Cardiac rhythm management (CRM) devices are medical devices developed by cardiac electrophysiology experts to regulate the beating of the heart, such as pacemakers, implantable defibrillators, and other devices and systems to treat cardiac rhythm disorders. The patent issues involved the mechanical engineering and electrical engineering technology used in an implantable CRM.
A medical device design expert with experience in cardiac electrophysiology was needed to review all patent information and consult on the relevant mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and medical device designtechnologies involved.
This medical device design expert has taught electrocardiography and the design of internal defibrillators and is experienced in electrode design and impedance testing. He has been both an academic and a practitioner of engineering for more than 50 years. He began to specialize in biomedical engineering in 1976. He has acted as an expert witness many times including giving testimony in cases relating to cardioverter-defibrillators and transcutaneous cardiac pacemakers.IMS Reference #1216843
