The BodiGuide Edema Monitor was the brainchild of Founder Bill Wekell, whose mother Lee suffered from Heart Failure. As Lee’s family caregiver, Bill observed that Lee would manage her diuretic dose by monitoring the tension on her “elastic” watch band. While doctors direct patients to monitoring weight gain, “experienced” heart failure patients learn monitoring peripheral edema of the arms and legs is more practical way to detect fluid retention.
