PrenCare is a system for the mobile home monitoring of uterine activity. It represents an advance in care, especially in the case of high-risk pregnancies with danger of premature birth.
The PrenCare Home integrated system for prenatal care is based on the use of continual external tocography in connection with the movement activity of the expectant mother.
The system consists of a small mobile sensor which is fixed directly to the body of the mother-to-be using an elasticated band, and a mobile application. The mobile sensor monitors uterine activity and movement activity of the expectant mother and saves the data gained in its memory.
The course of the uterine contractions is detected by a sensitive pressure sensor and is recorded in an internal memory along with the movement activity of the expectant mother.
The mobile sensor works on the principle of passive data recording. During the monitoring it does not transmit or radiate anything. The device is completely safe for the pregnant woman and the child, and it can be used long term. The device in direct contact with the patient is powered only from a low-voltage rechargeable battery. The actual transfer of the gained data only occurs after the device is removed from the body.
The PrenCare integrated prenatal care system has been successfully tested in the Institute for the Care of Mother and Child Podolí. The equipment complies with all laws, standards and decrees binding for the operation of electrical medical devices that apply on the territory of the Czech Republic.
