    Hello,

    As I'm reaching the tail end of (anticipated) treatment, I'm starting to put some PackTite monitors around.

    I do have a mattress engagement that I don't want to rip, so the one in my bedroom is sandwiched between the mattress and boxspring above my head.

    My couch is a super heavy pullout that I'm not able to regularly flip on my own. Currently, that PackTite is under the couch cushion on the side I sit most.

    Will either of these placements reduce confidence in the "14 days and you're good" standard?

    The bed sounds perfect. I've had better luck with placement under the front flap of fabric down at your feet as opposed to under a cushion.

    Replaced the couch one to an area under the couch that I can easily reach. Thanks!
