Intended for individuals with cardiac arrhythmias the BodyGuardian is an FDA cleared wearable sensor system that can remotely read a patient’s biometrics (ECG, heart rate (including variability and reliability), respiration rate and activity Level), sending the data to the service's cloud platform via a combination of Bluetooth and later the patients cellular data network.

The sensor features a bandage-like attachment so it can be easily placed on the skin and is powered via an integrated battery so the patient can go about their normal life without unnecessary restrictions from the device.

Remote Health Monitoring with BodyGuardian

Once in place authorized physicians and monitoring centers can access the data via a secure web portal or iPad application to create custom patient profiles or choose and manage alerts based on selected biometric changes in the individual's data. Additional benefits stated for the device include a better level of customer care for the patients, earlier possible hospital releases and overall cost saving benefits over current hospital monitoring solutions.
