BodyGuardian heart

With innovative digital technologies and accessories, the smartphone and wearable sensors are going to upend every aspect of healthcare. The end result will be the patient taking center stage for the first time.

This single system remotely transitions between 24-hour Holter, long-term Holter, cardiac event monitoring and mobile telemetry depending on patient needs and allows simple hook-up between service types without changing the device.

Caution: U.S. Federal law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.

case study


The patient's data is automatically detected and wirelessly delivered to the Preventice Monitoring Center. Physicians can access their patients’ data and review notifications securely anytime, anywhere via the web. Additionally, they can set thresholds for each patient allowing for individualized monitoring and care plan support. The reports can be integrated with the medical practice EMR system or reviewed on the web, based on the physician’s needs.

case study


ECG Insight®, Preventice cloud-based system, offers full transparency, allowing healthcare providers to see any and all rhythms a patient has without delays. With one click, a physician can examine the chosen event with extended tools to navigate surrounding unfiltered ECG, measure ECG using calipers, and correlate heart rates to event. ECG Insight® draws on the recent convergence of analytics and wireless protocols to speed clinical decision making.

Beyond Remote Cardiac Monitoring

Additional devices can be used in conjunction to remotely monitor vital signs. Numerous on-body, non-intrusive sensors can collect detailed, physiological data anytime, anywhere, such as: ECG, Heart Rate, Activity Level, Blood Pressure, Weight, Blood Glucose, and Peripheral Capillary Oxygen Saturation (SpO2).

practical applications of machine learning and artificial intelligence

Leveraging a Monitoring Algorithm Validated with Clinical Data

The BodyGuardian® remote monitoring system utilizes proprietary algorithms that are designed to create a constant connection between patients and their healthcare team. Preventice has invested in clinical evidence and real-world validation of the unique algorithms used to detect ventricular ectopic beats (VEBs), which are a sub-category of abnormal heart contractions that originate from the ventricles. For some patients, these beats signify a potential life-threatening and treatable cardiac irregularity. The proprietary algorithm, when used with mobile cardiac telemetry technology, empowers physicians and healthcare providers with valuable information regarding the occurrence and regularity of VEBs.

Clinical Evidence

In the study, algorithm validation was performed using the MIT-BIH arrhythmia database and also using real-world data collected from nearly 2,000 BodyGuardian® Heart patients. Results demonstrate that this proprietary classification model has sensitivity and specificity higher than any previously published, fully automated algorithms and demonstrates key short-comings associated with validation performed using only the MIT-BIH arrhythmia database.
