The BodyGuardian® MINI is the world's first submersible arrhythmia monitor indicated for both pediatric and adult patients.
Unlike many monitors, the BodyGuardian® MINI cardiac monitor has multiple placement options and offers you a wearable patch that can be moved and reapplied to optimize comfort and wearability. It can also be replaced during your monitoring period without jeopardizing data collection or requiring you to return to the clinic. The adhesive used does not require significant skin preparation and offers an easy and comfortable wearing experience.
The monitor design, ease-of-use and waterproof capability give you the freedom and peace of mind to go about your daily routine. You can engage in water sports or swimming, bolstering compliance without worry.
Your monitor does not summon physicians nor emergency assistance and does not replace direct communication with your healthcare provider. If you have medical concerns or health symptoms, contact your doctor or healthcare professional. If you have a medical emergency, call 911 immediately.
