of breath and fatigue on exertion--are difficult to objectively quantify, making assessment of the presence or severity of the condition largely subjective. Measuring patient gas exchange is the best method of assessing patient functional capacity, monitoring their response to therapy and predicting outcome. Shape-HF™ is designed to quantify the severity of dyspnea on exertion and fatigue and evaluate the interaction between the heart, lungs, and other organ systems. This makes it possible to evaluate therapy options for the individual patient and track patient progress. In addition, using the Shape-HF™ to measure changes in patient breathing efficiency as cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) settings are adjusted allows physicians to assess the physiological effect of therapy in real time while the patient is exercising at a level consistent with normal daily activity.

In addition to being the first and only device that objectively measures cardiopulmonary gas exchange easily and quickly without undue strain on the patient and in the office setting, Shape-HF™ provides real-time physiological assessment to enable CRT optimization during exercise and is cost-effective and easy to use. According to Shape Medical Systems President and COO Clarence Johnson, "Cost, logistics and the complexity of testing and data interpretation, as well as the significant level of patient discomfort associated with cardiopulmonary exercise testing has limited its utility and deprived physicians and their patients of much needed physiological information. Shape-HF™ overcomes these limitations. It provides objective data to the cardiologist right in the office or clinic. The test is easy on patients and the equipment is intuitive and easy to use."
