Insertable heart monitors

Getting a heart monitor

Trust the world's most clinically studied heart monitor, made for lasting peace of mind.

Why choose long-term heart monitoring?

Some information about your heart can only be found by watching it over time. An insertable monitor, also known as an "insertable cardiac monitor (ICM)" or "loop recorder," can watch your heart for irregular heartbeats 24/7 for up to 3–4.5 years* — all without changing your daily activities.

Insertable heart monitors provide important information to your doctor that other short-term monitors and wearables might miss.
