Pregmum: developed a maternal/fetal heart and blood pressure device for women in remote locations

Through a GPA grant of $5000 in November 2017 the Pregmum team created a fetal heart and maternal blood pressure monitor that can continuously monitor the heart rate of pregnant women in remote areas of Kenya. The device communicates medical information to a community health worker or doctor who is able to remotely assess if additional medical intervention is necessary. This device has the potential to significantly improve maternal/fetal heath and improve infant mortality rates.
