Remote, non-invasive pregnancy monitor tracks uterine activity

Uterine activity monitoring is essential to pregnancy management. Current methods are either invasive, or their accuracy is compromised by obesity, maternal movements, or belt positioning.

Pregnancy-monitoring company Nuvo has published a study showing that their cardiac-derived algorithm for uterine monitoring was more accurate than TOCO standard of care in 150 patients. This remote, non-invasive detection and monitoring of UA builds on the company’s existing remote fetal heart rate monitoring capabilities. Their goal is to bring comprehensive pregnancy monitoring home.
