Fetal Health

A ground breaking gynecological physiological diagnostic medical device.

Measuring the fetal EEG and ECG waveforms during pregnancy and labour.

About


IT-MEDicine Ltd. has been established to develop a new, currently on the market non-existent gynecological physiological diagnostic medical device.
Using the device in the everyday obstetrician practice, the mortality rates of intrauterine death could be significantly reduced, by measuring the fetal EEG and ECG waveforms during pregnancy and labour.
About About About

The Product


Our device is an innovative electrophysiological diagnostic device. With the use of our medical device, the number of intrauterine deaths and injuries could be significantly reduced in the daily maternity practice. The device alerts the medical team in case of intrauterine fetal hypoxia – more accurate than current methods. We develop a medical device, with the following features:

Indirect fetal ECG

Indirect fetal ECG (via the maternal abdominal wall) in the 2-3 trimester of pregnancy. Our system is capable of producing non-invasive ECG (electrocardiograms) waveforms in the third trimester of pregnancy (electrodes placed on the maternal abdominal wall).

Direct fetal ECG during delivery

In addition to non-invasive measurements, our system registers fetal ECG in real time during delivery (with a fetal scalp electrode). Direct fetal ECG can be used to predict oxygen deficiency. Our direct fetal ECG indicates cardiac function accurately and thus foetuses at risk can be detected, while unnecessary interventions are avoided.

Fetal EEG during delivery

A completely new test method is the real-time fetal EEG (electroencephalogram). During birth, the fetal brain is the one we need to protect most, since the expected quality of life is a direct consequence of the integrity of brain structures. Current methods are invasive and difficult to implement. Instead, our new diagnostic method, the accurate record of fetal EEG in real time, would continuously provide information on the status of brain structures.
