  • Do not use WaterTabs® if you are allergic to parabens.
  • WaterTabs, refill, or repair gel should not be used on broken skin.
  • Sense's QuickConnect has a magnet inside. This poses a risk for people with implanted devices, including anyone who may enter into close contact with the patient. Any implanted device should be kept at least 6 inches (15 cm) away from the magnets.
  • For AU/UK patients: Do not use Sense if you have indwelling devices.
How to prepare for your appointment

Before your appointment, make the following preparations:

  • Organize to bring someone with you who'll be able to help you at home.
  • Come with clean and dry hair. Don't use conditioner or other oil-based hair products when washing prior to the appointment.

  • Wear a button-up or loose-fitting shirt so it's easy to stick the electrodes to your chest. 
  • Arrange to travel home by car (if feasible) so it's easier to take the equipment with you.
  • Write down any questions you might want to ask during your appointment.

The appointment will take approximately 1 – 1.5 hours.

After your appointment, you'll take some devices home with you, including Sense, Sight, and the Take-home kit and monitoring portal.

  • When you want to take a shower, you'll take off Sense and put on the shower cap.
After your study

The day after your study while still at home, you'll:
