A Personal wearable device to track pregnant women health and environmental pollution during pregnancy.

What is it?

Personal wearable device to track pregnant women health and environmental pollution during pregnancy. Once the child is born the wearable device ‘transforms’ to a Mother device and baby monitoring / tag wearable which communicates the babies health and wellbeing data to the mother device.

During Pregnancy:
– optical sensor to monitors mothers HR during pregnancy (alert on high levels)
– motion sensors to detect mothers breathing and activity levels (alert on irregular breathing patterns)
– thermistor sensor to monitor mothers temperature (alert on high body temperature)
– CO sensor to detect air pollution levels associated with biomass cooking and poor ventilation (alert on high CO level detection)

Post Pregnancy:
– optical sensor to monitor baby HR levels (alert on high HR level)
– motion sensors to monitor baby activity, position and sleep (alert on dangerous sleep position)
– thermistor sensor to monitor baby temperature (alert on high baby body temperature)
– CO sensor to alert mother on environment pollution
– presence detection in Mothers device of baby monitor (information recorded to indication of breast feeding activity to medical staff)

How is it used?

Personal wearable device to track pregnant women health and environmental pollution during pregnancy. Once the child is born the wearable device ‘transforms’ to a Mother device and baby monitoring / tag wearable which communicates the babies health and wellbeing data to the mother device.

What technologies does it incorporate?

During Pregnancy:
– optical sensor to monitors mothers HR during pregnancy (alert on high levels)
– motion sensors to detect mothers breathing and activity levels (alert on irregular breathing patterns)
– thermistor sensor to monitor mothers temperature (alert on high body temperature)
– CO sensor to detect air pollution levels associated with biomass cooking and poor ventilation (alert on high CO level detection)

Post Pregnancy:
– optical sensor to monitor baby HR levels (alert on high HR level)
– motion sensors to monitor baby activity, position and sleep (alert on dangerous sleep position)
– thermistor sensor to monitor baby temperature (alert on high baby body temperature)
– CO sensor to alert mother on environment pollution
– presence detection in Mothers device of baby monitor (information recorded to indication of breast feeding activity to medical staff)

How does it work?

– Personal wrist worn device for pregnant women to measure HR, motion & breathing, temperature, and CO levels
– Rugged design with adjustable woven velcro strap that wraps around the wearers wrist
– Battery operated and simple controls to view measured parameters
– Audible and visual (coloured LED) alert status information (on high sensor levels)
– Data synch via Bluetooth with Mobile/Tablet application for medical staff to view current status, alert history, and recorded data (by day, week, month)
– Optional machine-to-machine (e.g. Eseye Anynet SIM) alerts to medical centre staff mobile device
– Easily converts (removable sensor pod) to separate baby monitoring device linked to main wearable device via Bluetooth once the baby has been born
– Hypoallergenic, adjustable, single moulded soft plastic baby sensor placed on the ankle (in similar way to common medical tag)
– Coated surface with space to write the baby name and birth date for baby identification and recording by medical staff
– Auto-Adapted sensor pod algorithms to monitor baby sleep, position, raised HR, temperature (once detached from the mother device)
– Data notifications sent to mothers wearable device (via Bluetooth), along with presence (implied breast feeding activity via immediate device presence and baby position)

Who uses it?

see attached pdf file with sketches and description on how Me2U is used

Why does it help?

The device is helping to monitor pregnant women health and environment during pregnancy to alert medical staff to problems that might affect the expectant mother and unborn child. Post pregnancy it then allows for tagging of the baby, and monitoring of the babies health in the critical 1st year, whilst still monitoring the environment for unsafe CO levels and providing a connection between the mother and baby
