NemoCare aims to end all preventable neonatal and maternal deaths in the developing world by building innovative affordable,accessible,highly accurate monitoring solutions for the emerging markets.We use unobtrusive wireless wearable sensors and networks, analytical algorithms and big data as tools to provide continuous, high resolution monitoring and preventive care for every patient in hospital, and at home- making sure that no stone is unturned to prevent any form of mortality and morbidity . We use design thinking principles to build life-saving technologies that will transform the way healthcare is delivered. The core issues we are tackling are...
Lack of accurate detection of conditions and alerting for timely intervention required to prevent injury
Early discharge due to lack of family and institutional resources increases the risk
Multiple devices for assesing vital signs are too complex for low skilled healthcare workers.
Current devices are expensive with high rate of false alarms.
In low resource setting, due to lack of manpower, attention to apnea and hypothermia is delayed or absent.
Bulky, wired devices that cannot be used during Kangaroo Mother Care and are not portable.
Our solution is a wearable on the newborn that continuously monitors the necessary vital parameters used to detect Apnea , Hypothermia and other distress conditions. An integrated diagnostic tool that connects wirelessly to a central platform which ensures that the nurse can monitor all the babies simultaneously and alert when the condition is detected.It continuously tracks key vital parameters, detects distress conditions and alerts the caregiver for providing timely intervention and securely stores the data that can be accessed later by the doctor.
Single piece of hardware to measure multiple vital signs.
Real - time monitoring and alerting
Useable both in hospital and at home
Unified platform for collection and management of data
Portable and low cost - can be used during transport
Can be used during Kangaroo Mother Care and at mothers side
No skilled training required
