What is Sense4Baby?
Sense4Baby is a portable, 600-gram CTG monitor, which communicates with an online portal (server) using a small tablet. The CTG trace can be viewed on the tablet or smartphone. It can also be accessed and assessed on any computer with an internet connection anywhere in the world. This means that not only the attending obstetrician is able to review the CTG, but also, for example, secondary-care health professionals, who can provide additional advice about the treatment to be pursued.
A Sense4Baby unit consists of a compact kit containing the following items: the Sense4Baby transducer, a tocodynamometer, a pulse-oximeter, the tablet, and accessories such as chargers, gel and maternity belts. The Sense4Baby unit can be used to perform CTGs for monitoring purposes, as well as before and during childbirth at the patient’s home and/or in the hospital, and even while the pregnant woman is being transported by ambulance, if necessary.
