Built on proven technology

Kora 250 is built on the heritage of Sorin pacemaker technology: the Reply platform. The Reply pacemaker platform has been proven in practice.7

Reply pacemakers:

  • 99.96% cumulative survival 6 years after implantation

Beflex leads:

  • 99.94% cumulative survival 5 years after implantation

Kora 250 is built on the Reply platform.

Powered by intelligent algorithms.

AutoMRI

  • Less time, more flexibility1
  • Making MRI scans easy and safe for pacemaker patients1
  • Automatic switch to initial configuration
  • No post-MRI visit needed
 

SafeR™

Advanced AV management for increased protection5, 8–14

  • Reduces RV pacing in SND and AVB patients5
  • Manages ALL types of AV blocks at rest and at exercise2, 5
  • Adds 2 YEARS of device longevity13, 14
  • Unique AV block diagnosis
 

Dual Sensor

  • Adjust to metabolic needs. Exercise safely
  • Designed to physiologically modulate the heart rhythm by combining Accelerometer and Minute Ventilation sensors
 

Sleep Apnea Monitoring

Early detection, long-term risk reduction2,6,15–19

  • Reliable screening to detect severe sleep apnea with high specificity (85%) and high sensitivity (89%)6
  • Correlated with gold standard Apnea–Hypopnea Index*6
  • Designed to monitor the evolution of sleep apnea2

*Apnea Hypopnea Index (AHI) = number of events/number of hours of sleep
