The mycarelink is the interface for an implantable loop recorder. That is a small flash card sized device implanted in the chest for long term ecg monitoring. This is not a pacemaker or a defibrillator but rather only monitors the heart long term. It is frequently used for patients to identify rare arrhythmias, often in the setting of unexplained fainting. This device is purely sensing and does not have the ability to pace or shock the heart.

Thanks! I've added an update now.
