Rethinking mobility during
labor induction

Safer. Healthier. More Engaging Childbirth.

There is an urgent global need for enhanced quantitative, safety-increasing monitoring devices for labor induction, particularly those suitable for at-home, outpatient settings.

Maternity Innovation Needed

Devices that can significantly improve access and increase health outcomes for women of color and those residing in outside of city area.

The prevailing megatrend has resulted in women worldwide are becoming mothers at later ages and experiencing pre-existing medical conditions, such as obesity and high blood pressure. These growing number of pregnancies require special attention and innovative approaches.

Currently, poor induction and delivery outcomes are common in women with maternal or fetal risk factors, as well as those lacking obstetric care during pregnancy. Additionally, suboptimal timing, methods, and management of the labor induction process contribute to these outcomes.

Ob-Gyn and Engineering Collaboration

We're dedicated to rethink maternal-fetal health through innovation: setting women safely in motion with affordable high-quality maternal and fetal well-being measuring remote monitoring device which is designed to transform the labor induction, onset of childbirth safer, healthier and more engaging experience.
Our solution is the result of seamless collaboration between a diverse team of experts. We've developed a groundbreaking non-invasive sensor system to utilize as a part of current standard of care, foley catheter cervical ripening. This sensor technology significantly enhances outpatient safety, reduces healthcare expenses, and ultimately improves the birthing experience for millions of women worldwide.

- Designed for healthcare to mobilize mothers.

Novel sensor technology

Large international studies have shown that at-home, outpatient induction is a safe and effective option for birthing women.

Our aim is to set women safely in motion, out of the birthing room and off one hospital floor, and to enhance the safe onset of childbirth through optimized, efficient, and personalized labor induction management. Our smart technology enables healthcare providers to monitor mothers' contractions and fetal heart rate during Foley catheter cervical ripening, whether in inpatient or outpatient settings.


For healthcare providers, this technology serves as a remote data-driven decision-making tool for timely and informed induction process management, leading to improved fetal and maternal safety. Continuous real-time monitoring of induction progress enables anticipation of treatment needs and promotes more efficient use of hospital resources, ultimately saving healthcare resources.

Our system enhances patient safety, mobility, and provides them with valuable insights into their personal birth journey. By keeping mothers informed, it helps reduce stress and anxiety, leading to a better childbirth experience. The design of our sensor system prioritizes comfort throughout the labor induction journey.

We have patent pending solution. Currently, we are conducting initial clinical validations for our sensor technology at Helsinki University Hospital, Finland.
