MediByte® Junior Type 3 Recorder

Using patent-pending technology, this next generation MediByte® Junior Home Sleep Testing (HST) device provides simple, cost-effective and reliable oral appliance monitoring for sleep apnea. Constructed of smooth ABS plastic with an extra-strength lockable LEMO™ connector, the MediByte® Junior was designed for durability and reliability. Weighing less than three ounces, it is ideal for both adult and pediatric studies. Side wings attach the unit to the chest effort belt so a holding vest or pouch is not required.
On-board oximetry and an internal accurate pressure sensor eliminate external transducers. An oversized, tactile push-button allows the patient to indicate specifi c events during a recording. Studies are stored on the internal memory and downloaded via a USB computer connection.
This recorder is the next generation of screening devices. CPAP/AutoPAP compatible, the MediByte® Junior may be used during titration studies or for follow-up evaluations.

MediByte® Junior Software

The MediByte® Junior Software is an exclusive application that simplifi es every step of a study, from setup to analysis to reporting. It is extremely easy to use, yet provides accurate assisted scoring and quality reports. Patient preparation uses a quick setup wizard to eliminate user error.
