Description Snuza Hero (Halo)
The Snuza Hero (previously known as Snuza Halo) is a state-of-the-art baby movement monitor designed to keep track of your baby’s breathing. By monitoring abdominal movements, it will let you know if baby is breathing properly. This wearable device simply clips on to your baby’s diaper so that the sensitive rubber sensor rests directly on your baby’s tummy. The monitor can detect even the slightest movements and will let you know if abdominal activity is insufficient or drops to less than eight movements per minute.
The lightweight and portable Snuza Hero takes the trouble out of traditional movement monitors that come with bulky sensor pads, wires, and cords that can disturb baby’s sleep. The Snuza Hero gives you peace of mind and enables early intervention to prevent critical or emergency situations.
Movement indicator lights and an audible tick feature allow you to monitor breathing activity at a glance. Unlike other baby breathing monitors that simply alert you when no activity is detected, the Snuza Hero will vibrate in an attempt to rouse your baby if the device does not pick up any movement for 15 seconds. That way, your baby can be alerted to resume breathing, which is very important in the prevention of SIDS. After this, the device will revert back to its monitoring mode. If baby does not respond to this rousing for three consecutive 15-second intervals, the Snuza Hero will sound a sharp audible alarm after a further 5-second period. That should let you know you that you need to check on your baby to make sure he is okay.
The Snuza Hero is best used with a separate baby sound or video monitor so you can extend the distance of your monitoring to wherever you are in the home. Do note that the Snuza Hero picks up movements and is thus not suitable when moving (stroller or car seat). The Snuza Hero is officially not intended for use as a medical device.
