April 16, 2014
Mobile healthcare technology solutions provider AirStrip recently acquired assets from Sense4Baby Inc., a developer of Smartphone-based maternal/fetal monitoring system. Sense4Baby was originally researched and licensed at the West Health Institute, and was able to obtain 510(k) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance and a CE mark from the European Commission the previous year to commercialize the device in clinical spheres.
Engineered for non-stress testing (NST) in high-risk pregnancies, Sense4Baby’s handheld wireless fetal and maternal heart rate monitoring system can be used with tablets or smartphones and can function wherever cellular service is available. The acquisition deal between Sense4Baby and AirStrip is tailored to primarily allow women to undergo NST and timely tracks their contraction patterns during labor alongside the baby’s heart rate during antepartum period through non-invasive sensors at doctor’s offices and other health care facilities. AirStrip also has plans to obtain an FDA clearance to use the Sense4Baby device for home-based NST and monitoring.
Real-time patient data obtained from the Sense4Baby device will be integrated with AirStrip ONE, an interoperable data mobility application that allows clinical data extraction ranging from vital signs, allergies, medications, medical images as well as laboratory results from different electronic medical record (EMR) systems, which then combines the information in one screen for mobile gadgets and compatible desktop viewing.
Jessica Grossman, MD, president and CEO of Sense4Baby said, "AirStrip's established expertise in clinical mobility, particularly in fetal/maternal mobile health technology, will support the ongoing clinical and commercial development of the Sense4Baby System.”
Medical breakthroughs in the field of fetal monitoring continue to revolutionize maternal and prenatal care continuum for the better. Integrating today’s innovative mobile clinical solutions with first-rate fetal monitoring systems is essential for the delivery of optimum fetal and maternal care.
