Potential Uses and Benefits

More accurate and frequent monitoring of true labor in pregnant women will allow practitioners to start treatment early in patients experiencing true labor and avert unnecessary treatment and hospitalization for patients who are having contractions, but who are not in true labor. This facilitates treatment contributing to the improved management of labor, which in turn increases the survival rate of babies and reduces the cost of births.

With the Sense4Baby® system clinicians can monitor pregnancies from anywhere, anytime.

  • Accuracy Made Easy

Easy-to-use and highly sensitive, the Sense4Baby® unit provides accurate fetal heart rate detection in near real time.

  • Insight Anywhere

Clinicians can access traces of fetal heart rate, uterine contractions and other trendable biometric data, right on their smartphone or tablet.

  • Secure Web Portal

A HIPAA-compliant patient database of test results and patient data can be viewed through any internet browser.

  • Remote Monitoring

The Sense4Baby® System combines a smart wireless device and secure cloud technology, enabling remote cardiotocography.

  • Observable Benefits

Sense4Baby® reduces patient risk by accelerating healthcare decision-making and intervention, enables collaboration by providing all care team members with remote data access, and helps enhance quality of care by exceeding clinicians’ reach throughout the obstetrics care continuum.
