Cardi/o®is unique from other heart rate monitors – there is no wearable device so the individual enjoys more independent living, wearable-free – there is nothing to charge, Cardi/o® senses your cardiac activity using radar technology.
Cardi/o® reads heart rate and respiratory rate signals up to 10 feet (approximately 3 meters) when installed as directed. However, this range varies based on the person and environmental conditions in the room. Best performance occurs between 5-7 feet for most people. Additional monitors can be installed in larger rooms to ensure broader coverage areas.
Yes, you can install a Cardi/o® monitor in every room at your home and all of them can be viewed from a central dashboard in your smartphone app.
Yes, each account holder can provide guest access to observe the data streaming from the monitor.
No special equipment is needed to operate Cardi/o®. The basic requirements are:
1. A power outlet for powering the monitor 24/7
2. Internet connection via WiFi to stream data in real-time.
3. Smart phone to review statistics and receive alerts
The heart rate (HR) monitor can provide an accurate estimation of the user’s heart rate at any given point in time. While Cardi/o® is state of the art technology, there are inherent limitations with the radar technology that may cause some of the heart rate readings to be inaccurate under certain circumstances. These circumstances include the user’s physical characteristics, location of the user in the room, distance of the user from the monitor, other RF interferers and the intensity of the motion of the user.

No, each Cardi/o® monitor is designed to detect the heart rate of a single individual in the room. Multiple persons within the same coverage area of a single monitor will not produce accurate data.
However, Cardi/o® can be installed over beds located in the same room for continuous sleep monitoring and efficient nighttime caregiving.
