Horizon 2020 project FETAL MONITORING

Nemo Healthcare focuses on the development of innovative technology for pregnancy monitoring. Most of its solutions consist of patient friendly sensors combined with specific hardware for the processing of measurement signals into clinically relevant information.

The products that Nemo Healthcare currently offers are intended for improved registration of uterine activity within a hospital environment. Nemo Healthcare is further extending its technology by developing a solution that is capable of monitoring the heart activity of the unborn child. This new application will use an improved electrode patch on the abdomen of the pregnant woman. The new technology will connect wireless to existing fetal monitoring systems.

Horizon 2020 grant

Nemo Healthcare has received a Horizon 2020 grant from the Europen Commission to further develop this new application for pregnancy monitoring.

Uterine activity and fetal heart rate

The new solution of Nemo Healthcare, that will consist of a non-invasive innovative electrode patch (Parides) combined with the hardware/software module (Atlantis), will be able to simultaneously record uterine activity and fetal heart rate. The solution is characterized by unique and smart algorithms that can accurately and real-time filter contractions and the fetal heart rate from unprocessed abdominal electrophysiological signals, successfully eliminating noise or interference. The solution will be able to transfer the recorded data wirelessly.

The solution will create a breakthrough in the field of fetal monitoring: it will result in better diagnoses, improved quality of care, a reduced number of birth-related problems, increased ease of use for medical staff, increased patient comfort and lower healthcare cost (through remote monitoring, reduced treatment and avoidance of unnecessary surgery).
