The Optimizer® Smart System

The Optimizer® Smart is a minimally invasive implantable device that treats patients experiencing symptoms of moderate to severe CHF even after appropriate medical treatment. The device operates by delivering precisely timed electric pulses called CCMTM (Cardiac Contractility Modulation) therapy.

As a result, patients experience a higher quality of life through the reduction of CHF symptoms such as overwhelming shortness of breath and fatigue.

Heart Failure? Hope Is Here Through the Optimizer® Smart.


Heart failure (HF) is a global pandemic affecting at least over 64 million people worldwide

Although current therapies are effective, heart failure progresses fast and patients require intensive cardiac management to maintain their quality of life.


Are you struggling with heart failure? Hope is here through CCMTM therapy, delivered by the Optimizer® Smart.




The system is for patients with advanced symptoms of heart failure such as weakness and shortness of breath—symptoms that diminish their quality of life.



This implantable, device-based treatment senses the heart’s electrical activity and delivers therapy throughout the day.



Implanted in over 9,000 patients struggling with heart failure to date, the Optimizer® Smart is safe and effective for its intended use and performs as intended.

Getting the Right Diagnosis

The Optimizer® Smart system was invented to help patients diagnosed with moderate to severe heart failure, yet with normal QRS duration.

Is It Right for You?

Have you been diagnosed with chronic heart failure? If so, your current therapy may include pharmaceuticals such as water pills or beta-blockers. And with a normal QRS duration, you don’t qualify for additional therapies such as Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy.

You may feel your medication is the only treatment you have access to. Although once true, with the Optimizer® Smart, it’s now possible to experience relief from moderate to severe heart failure and gain your life back.
