Arrhythmia Research Technology, Inc. ("ART" or the "Company") ( NYSE MKT : HRT ) today announced the appointment of Michael S. Gunter, a director, as interim Chief Executive Officer upon the resignation of James E. Rouse as the Company's Chief Executive Officer and as a member of its Board of Directors effective October 26, 2012.

"It has been a pleasure to have worked at ART and Micron Products these past sixteen years. After much thought, I have decided to take some time to pursue a new path in my career. I wish ART and its employees much success in the future," said Mr. Rouse.

Mr. E.P. Marinos, Chairman of the Board of Directors, said: "The Board and I are grateful to Mr. Rouse for his leadership and integrity in guiding ART and its operating subsidiary, Micron Products, Inc., over the past sixteen years. We wish him all the best with the next stage in his career. We are confident that Mr. Gunter's familiarity with the Company's business from his service over the past year and more as a director as well as his previous eight years experience at Primo Water Corp., most recently as Sr. Vice President, will help to facilitate a smooth transition."

Mr. Gunter said, "I look forward to working with the management team and dedicated employees with a focus on returning the Company to profitability in the near term as the Company concentrates its efforts on its core manufacturing competencies."
