About Healium Medical
Healium Medical - develops no-contact guided ablation system for treatment
of atrial fibrillation – the most common cardiac arrhythmia affecting
more than 46.1 Million patients worldwide¹.
The company developed a miniature ultrasound transducer enabling contactless circumferential
pulmonary vein isolation with real-time lesion monitoring.
Our goal is to improve procedure efficacy (currently, poor 60% long term²),
simplify procedure flow and shorten procedure time.
The company operates out of Yokneam, Israel, have full scale in-house R&D lab,
employs multidisciplinary team of physicist, engineers & physicians and have pre-clinical
data supporting the feasibility of its proprietary technology.
