1 in 250 pregnancies in the UK end in stillbirth. In order to reduce the chances of a still birth, early identification of reduced fetal movement is key. With many women struggling to accurately monitor their baby’s movement, this device provides them with an efficient, easy to use and accurate monitoring system. It provides real time feedback to the mother with daily updates on her baby’s movements.
The device aims to reassure the mother that her baby is moving in a manner that is to be expected throughout their pregnancy. Made from expandable and breathable material for comfort, this device had been designed to stretch and mould to the mother’s belly as it grows throughout pregnancy.
