In response to my post “A Challenge to History Buffs: Who Was Digikon?“, Paolo Pagani sent me the following message:
“Digikon was in the years 1977-1985 the brand name product in Italy by Biotec Biomedical Technologies of Bologna – ITALY.
Pacemakers were a Digikon O.E.M. production for the trading company of Milan Italy KONTRON already a distributor in Italy of Medtronic.
Biotec developed the first pacemaker VVIR based on physiological changes in thoracic impedance due to respiration. (Biotec RDP-3)
Biotec-Bologna was acquired by Medtronic in August 1985.”
Thank you Paolo!
