OBMedical® Company is proud to announce the launch of our LaborView™ System in the US.   The LaborView™ System is a major advancement in external fetal monitoring using a wireless electrode array that captures maternal and fetal heart rate plus contraction data during labor for a wide range of BMI classifications¹. Placed once on the maternal abdomen, the system is light and easy-to-wear while walking, moving or turning. It is compatible with commonly used legacy electronic fetal monitors, and L&D nurses will appreciate the lack of repositioning and ease of application.   The LaborView system is FDA cleared for sale in the United States and is manufactured in the US.   LaborView is expected to be available outside the US in 2017.

Founded in 2012 by a team led by  Weaver Gaines and Neil Euliano, Ph.D., our technology is a result of over a decade of biomedical research using neural networks, signal processing, information theory, data fusion, artificial intelligence at CE Engineering and the University of Florida coupled with the clinical experience of the OB-GYN Department at the University of Florida College of Medicine.

For Professionals

Our clinical trial used three primary end points to demonstrate the effectiveness of the LaborView device for assessing Uterine Activity.  These were Positive Percent Agreement, Sensitivity, and Timing Accuracy. The hypotheses for Positive Percent Agreement and Sensitivity were non-inferiority hypotheses when compared to the Tocodynamometer, and for the Timing Accuracy, the hypothesis was equivalence when compared to the Tocodynamometer.

For Patients

The tracking or tracing of the baby’s heart rate as well as the mom’s has been common in the United States for almost fifty years. Today, almost 75% of patients in labor at the hospital are tracked using belts and straps that record these measurements. Many moms have complained that these belts and straps are uncomfortable and generally keep you in the bed since the straps and wires are connected to monitors that sit next to the bed.
