Is the HeraBEAT monitor easy to use or do I need training?
You don’t need any prior knowledge about fetal heart rate monitors to use HeraBEAT. Our dedicated HeraBEAT app connects wirelessly to the device and guides you through each step from applying the gel, to maneuvering the device until you hear the heartbeat.
Is HeraBEAT safe for use?
HeraBEAT meets all safety standards of a medical device. It has passed rigorous tests in compliance with all relevant medical device safety standards. The device has received a medical CE compliance certificate by the British Standard Institute (BSI).
Is the app compatible with one particular phone?
You can use HeraBEAT with most smartphones. For iOS, it is supported by iOS 8 and up and for Android smart devices, HeraBEAT is supported by Android 6 and up, with BLE Bluetooth chip 4 and up.
When can I start using HeraBEAT?
HeraBEAT can be used as early as week 12. Due to several physiological aspects of the pregnancy however, such as baby size and placenta position, it can sometimes be harder to locate the heartbeat. Towards week 18 though, the device becomes easier to use.
