In a cardiomyoplasty system, a rate responsive implantable device is disclosed which controls the stimulation of both the heart and a myoplasty muscle. The metabolic demand is used as a rate response parameter and one or both of the heart and the muscle stimulation are increased with metabolic demand. Under certain conditions, for example, if the muscle is tired, its stimulation is maintained constant or reduced and the cardiac stimulation is used to compensate for increased metabolic demand.
