Smart Fetal Monitoring Belt

Fetal movement is an important index of fetal well-being. The timely detection of abnormalities in fetal movement or uterine contraction is vital to reduce the incidence of fetal loss, perinatal morbidity and maternal distress. This project aims to develop a new fabric product which can detect fetal movement/uterine contraction and monitor change pattern safely and reliably. The originality and innovation of the proposed new fabric monitoring belt is characterized by its unique structure of detection pad with fabric sensor array and power of control card with multiple functions of signal processing to meet the special requirements of being wearable, reliable, non-intrusive, radiation free and washable. There are no such similar products available in the market.
