Automated Remote Foetal Monitoring

Project description

Disruptive technology helping prevent neonatal deaths

The alarming daily number of neonatal deaths has put foetal monitoring under the spotlight. A baby’s heartbeat can be checked continuously with cardiotocographs (CTGs); however, this requires medical staff to constantly interpret the data. This type of monitoring can also make it hard for mothers to move freely during birth, and it can be unreliable at times. The EU-funded ARFM project aims to change this with their mobile foetal heart rate (FHR) automatic recording solution. The device works by placing a multi-sensor belt on the maternal abdomen. Then, using AI algorithms, it searches and tracks FHR instantly while avoiding any breaks in FHR automatic recording. The solution can be used both at home and at maternity wards.
