Philips is releasing a fetal monitoring device designed to help pregnant women and their physicians keep a close eye on what’s going on in the womb while maintaining respect for ongoing social distancing recommendations.

The system allows clinicians to keep a continuous eye on the mother’s and child’s heart rates, as well as uterine activity, for 48 hours straight using a single patch while the patients are at home.

The Avalon CL Fetal and Maternal Pod and Patch is disposable and can easily be placed on the belly by the mother once the previous one has served its life.

“The fact that the new sensors are disposable and don’t require constant repositioning has been particularly useful for us in the peak of the COVID-19 wave in March and April in Lisbon,” said Prof. Dr. Diogo Ayres-de-Campos, University of Lisbon, and President-Elect of the European Association of Perinatal Medicine (EAPM).
