Biosense Webster, a Johnson & Johnson company, specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias (abnormal electrical activity in the heart). Biosense Webster (Israel), Ltd. Is the Technology Center for R&D and Manufacturing for systems worldwide.
A global leader in its field, Biosense, Inc. began as a start-up in Haifa, Israel, with Dr. Shlomo Ben-Haim’s development of a 3-D cardiac mapping and navigation technology that provided new levels of insight, precision, and safety in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. At the same time, Webster Laboratories was founded by pioneer inventor Will Webster, whose advanced catheter designs were based on the practical needs and demands of physicians. In 1998, Biosense joined Webster Laboratories to form Biosense Webster.
2012 marked the fifteenth anniversary of the acquisition of Biosense Webster by Johnson & Johnson. Biosense Webster continues to be one of the fastest growing businesses in Johnson & Johnson and, in fact, has grown more than 20-fold since the acquisition. As the world’s leading cardiac electrophysiology company, Biosense Webster currently has more than 2000 employees worldwide, with above $1 billion in annual sales.
The CARTO® 3 System has given electrophysiologists access to 3-D, real-time, color-coded views into the heart’s electrical activity, allowing diagnosis and treat-ment with increasing precision. The ThermoCool® SmartTouch™ Contact Force Sensing Catheter provides electrophysiologists with the ability to sense the amount and force of contact. ThermoCool® SF Catheter with Surround Flow Technology provides uniform cooling during ablation procedures. Biosense Webster has also developed an image integration solution for electrophysiology labs around the world. This solution integrates real-time x-ray images, from Siemens Healthcare, GE Healthcare and Philips Healthcare X-Ray systems, into the CARTO® 3 System.

The ReWalk™ exoskeleton suit uses patented technology with motorized legs that power knee and hip movement. Battery-powered for all-day use, ReWalk is controlled by on-board computers and motion sensors, restoring self-initiated walking without needing tethers or switches to begin stepping. ReWalk controls movement using subtle changes in center of gravity, mimics the natural gait pattern of the legs similar to that of an able-bodied person and provides functional walking speed. A forward tilt of the upper body is sensed by the system, which triggers the first step.
Repeated body shifting generates a sequence of steps which allows natural and efficient walking. The ReWalk also sits, stands, allows turning and has the ability to climb and descend stairs. Using crutches for support, you can walk and speak eye-to-eye with others in the clinic or on city streets and you can also navigate slopes and uneven terrain.
