What does Integer sell?

Integer serves the medical device industry focusing on the following lines of high-quality products:

MEDICAL
Cardiac Rhythm Management (CRM) & Neuromodulation – Within this product-line Integer offers a comprehensive collection of technologies and capabilities. Integer’s complete spectrum of design, development, and manufacturing expertise provides customers with a superior quality solution in an efficient, cost-effective, and consistent manner.

Cardiac and neuromodulation products include batteries, capacitors, filtered and unfiltered feedthroughs, engineered components, implantable stimulation leads and enclosures used in Implantable Medical Devices (“IMD”). Additionally, we offer value-added assembly for these IMDs. An IMD is an instrument that is surgically inserted into the body to provide diagnosis and/or therapy. One sector of the IMD market is cardiac, which is comprising devices such as implantable pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (“ICD”), cardiac resynchronization therapy (“CRT”) devices, cardiac resynchronization therapy with backup defibrillation devices (“CRT-D”), insertable cardiac monitors (“ICM”), and ventricular assist devices. Another sector of the IMD market is neuromodulation, comprised of pacemaker-type devices that stimulate nerves for the treatment of various conditions. Beyond established therapies for pain control, incontinence, movement disorders (Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor and dystonia) and epilepsy, nerve stimulation for the treatment of other disabilities such as sleep apnea, heart failure, migraines, obesity and depression has shown promising results.

The following are the main categories of battery-powered IMDs and the principal illness or symptoms treated by each device:

Device Principal Illness or Symptom
Pacemakers Abnormally slow heartbeat (Bradycardia)
ICDs Rapid and irregular heartbeat (Tachycardia)
CRT / CRT-Ds Congestive heart failure
ICMs Unexplained fainting or risk of cardiac arrhythmias
Neurostimulators Chronic pain, incontinence, movement disorders, epilepsy, obesity, or depression
Cochlear hearing devices Hearing loss

IMD systems generally include an IPG and one or more stimulation leads. An IPG is a battery powered device that produces electrical pulses. A lead then carries this electrical pulse from the IPG to the heart, spinal cord or other location in the body. Our portfolio of proprietary technologies, products, and capabilities has been built to provide our cardiac and neuromodulation customers with a single source for the vast majority of the components and subassemblies required to manufacture an IPG or lead, including complete lead systems. Our investments in research and development have generated proprietary products such as the QHR ® , QMR ® , and QCAPS TM primary battery and capacitor lines, which have enabled our OEM partners to make improvements in their system offerings in terms of device reliability, size, longevity and power. Our Xcellion TM line of Lithium-Ion rechargeable batteries leverages decades of implantable battery research, development and manufacturing expertise. This line of battery cells includes the optional CoreGuard TM feature, which enables batteries to discharge to zero volts without performance degradation.

The following are the principal products and services offered by our Cardiac & Neuromodulation product line:

  • Cardiac Rhythm Management - provides a broad range of products and services to enable next generation CRM medical devices to address heart disease and heart rhythm disorders through such systems as: pacemakers, implantable cardiac defibrillators, cardiac resynchronization therapy devices, implantable cardiac monitors and other novel implantable devices.
