Diagnostics for children

Keep your child as happy as possible with a comfortable monitoring period from home.

Are you currently undergoing testing?

There’s no place like home

For children, the experience of long-term monitoring can be overwhelming and scary and the thought of having to keep them in a hospital bed for several days is daunting for parents.

The home setting helps to alleviate these stressors from the testing experience.

Monitoring that doesn’t feel like testing

Most children who undergo testing are able to:

— Bathe and shower
— Play with toys and games
— Nap throughout the day

Keeping a child’s regular routine helps to maintain their sense of security without compromising on data recording quality.

Frequently asked questions

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions at all. 

Do I need a referral?

Yes. You will need a referral from your doctor or specialist before monitoring.
Feel free to start a conversation with your doctor or specialist about Seer Medical and they can help determine whether it is an appropriate monitoring solution for you.

Does Seer Medical come to my home?

No. There is a connection appointment to have the system fitted to you and a disconnection appointment at the end of monitoring. The time between these two appointments is spent at home.

Is this service suitable for children?

Yes. Seer Medical's service is suitable for children from the age of four. We provide one of the most comfortable and non-invasive long-term video-EEG-ECG monitoring solutions in the world. The entire monitoring duration occurs within the comfort of your own home so children especially feel more at ease.

Why is video recording needed?

The video recording component of our service plays a key part in making a diagnosis.

The information captured on this recording, together with your EEG and ECG data, allows a medical professional to see the moments that led up to an event, the environment in which the event occurs, and the body movements during the event.

You will be asked to remain in view of the camera as often as possible, but feel free to leave it behind when you need some privacy.

We take your privacy extremely seriously at Seer Medical. We will only review video when an event is reported by you or your caregiver or at times when our scientists find abnormalities in the data.

Can I shower or bathe during testing?

We are delighted to say, yes! All of our systems allow for either sponge bathing or showering. If you are connected with our magnetic connector or Seer Sense™ systems, you can disconnect for several minutes while you enjoy a shower. 

How much does it cost?

There is no out-of-pocket cost. Monitoring is fully bulk-billed with a valid Medicare card.
