According to Digital Trends, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has recommended an innovative pacemaker-type device be approved in the United States. The "Optimizer Smart Implantable Pulse Generator" is a medical device that’s implanted under the patient's right collarbone, with electrodes that then extend into the heart wall. Unlike a regular pacemaker that regulates heart rate, this device uses high-energy pulses to boost failing heart muscle tissue. If the device does win final approval from the FDA, the Optimizer Smart Implantable Pulse Generator will then go through 3 to 5 years of post-approval studies.
