About Acutus Medical
Since June, 2011, Acutus Medical has pioneered a new and novel approach in the minimally invasive imaging and mapping of cardiac arrhythmias.

Acutus Medical has concentrated its efforts on developing its technology for the treatment of an aberrant arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation (AF).
