CathVision Cube: disruptive data-driven guidance for successful cardiac ablation therapy

Project description

A new diagnostic tool will help physicians find and treat arrhythmia in a heartbeat

Every day, the heart expands and contracts about 100 000 times, pumping approximately 7 500 litres of blood annually. Rhythmic contraction is induced by electrical activity of the so-called pacemaker, a group of cells in the cardiac wall, and is important for adequate oxygenation of all the body’s tissues. Atrial fibrillation is a loss of rhythm when the heart’s pacemakers start firing in a disorganised way. It is a major cause of stroke that is treated with ablation of the abnormal tissue where the spurious signals arise. CathVision Cube is developing a pioneering electrophysiological recording system with AI-assisted guidance to help in identifying and ablating the source of atrial fibrillation with important impacts on the healthcare sector and affected individuals.


Cardiac arrhythmias are projected to rise during next years. The most prevalent type, Atrial Fibrillation, is projected to increase in the EU from 8.8m in 2010 to 17.9m by the year 2060, leading to a strain on physicians and health systems. Thus, better ablation guiding tools will be necessary to help physicians more efficiently identify, characterise and treat arrhythmias, facilitating training of new electrophysiologists, while reducing procedure and medicine costs. Sex-specific CVD also needs to be better addressed, as it is currently often misdiagnosed in females due to smaller cardiac signals and standards based on male physiology.
CathVision Cube is a low-noise electrophysiology (EP) recording system that combines a cutting-edge amplifier with AI assisted decision-making and easy-to-use user interface. Physicians will have access to exceptional EP signals thanks to proprietary hardware technology that reduces noise, prevents signal artefacts and improves signal quality. Doctors will also gain electrogram-driven clinical decision support through the intuitive and logical graphical interface of our AI-software, which allows proper identification of arrhythmogenic areas and guidance to a successful ablation – particularly important for less experienced EP physicians. Moreover, our system enables data export to Electronic Medical Records (EMR), integrates seamlessly into the hospital environment and is also compatible with third-party equipment.
Our goal is to mature, pilot and commercialise our CathVision Cube – the world first low-noise EP recording system and AI-assisted decision-making for physicians performing cardiac ablation therapy. A successful CathVision Cube project will create measurable impacts on our company, quantified as accumulated revenue of €457m in 5 years (2021-2025), accumulated operating profit of €348m, creating 45 FTE in our value chain, generating €1.35m in reduced annual costs per hospital and unlocking public savings of €1.1bn by 2025
