Fetal Lite - An Effective Tool to Predict Birth Asphyxia

The team has proposed to develop an intelligent, potable easy to use fetal monitoring system based on the principle of non-invasive fetal ECG analysis and a custom consumable for low skill application of the device The final outcome is a CE certified next-generation fetal monitor and a custom low-cost consumable which can be used by low skill staff in low resource settings. The innovation offers unique benefits like a single probe for multiple parameters, no need to locate the fetal heart, automated anomaly detection, auto fetal movement tracking, zero intervention post application, remote monitoring capabilities and ambulatory monitoring for patient comfort. The device can be used by frontline healthcare workers with minimal training. It will lead to early detection of fetal distress and a reduction in intrapartum mortality.
