AbstractA system and method for ambulatory monitoring and programming of an implantable medical device are provided. The system enables ambulatory communication between a modified programmer/analyzer and an implantable medical device having telemetric communication capability. This is accomplished through the use of an ambulatory interface unit which may be conveniently attached to the patient's body using a belt or harness. The ambulatory interface unit wirelessly communicates with both the programmer/analyzer and the implantable medical device thereby providing for improved patient mobility. The ambulatory interface unit may include an integral telemetry head or may be connected to the telemetry head by a communication cable.
