The continuous detection of biosignals opens up new therapeutic and diagnostic possibilities for both fields of bradyarrhythmias and of tachyarrhythmias. However, the new technologies make high demands on the long-term stability of the sensors, the energy reserve of the system and — in particular — the “intelligence” of the pacemaker.
