Remotaid Develops a Wireless Fetal Heart Rate Monitor for Stillbirth Prediction and PreventionSeptember 24, 2014
Healthcare startup innovator Remotaid recently developed a portable, “passive” fetal heart rate monitor tailored to facilitate a more convenient exchange of monitoring information between the physician and mother-to-be on the baby’s overall condition. Unlike its contemporary foetal monitoring systems, this wireless, Bluetooth-enabled technology employs a patented sonocardiographic technique instead of an ultrasound system, which guarantees emission-free and safe monitoring to both mother and the baby.
The most commonly known causes of stillbirth and neonatal deaths include spontaneous preterm delivery, maternal hypertensive disorders (pre-eclampsia), prematurity, placental problems, growth restriction, and infections, among other complications before labor and during delivery. Thanks to these fetal care advancements, the late-term stillbirth can now be predicted as well as prevented through at-home routine surveillance of a fetus’ health.
Stillbirths are mostly diagnosed through listening to baby’s heartbeat. However, “a problem with fetal heartbeat is always just an early sign of a future problem in the coming days,” said Peter Tatrai, Remotaid Chief Executive Officer. He also explained that such pregnancy problems take one or more days for real complications to develop.
The Remotaid monitor is ideal to allay pregnancy loss without compromising mother and babies’ safety. Designed to be strapped around the woman’s belly during the last terms of pregnancy, this device provides a continuous monitoring from the convenience of the home and is recommended to be worn for about 20 minutes per day. This wireless fetal monitor allows real-time data transmission through cellular communication making physician-patient interaction more convenient.
This breakthrough fetal heart rate monitor provides continuous monitoring results which is essential in delivering high quality prenatal care.
