Philips and Monica Healthcare have announced an exclusive global collaboration on fetal monitoring solution that will advance maternal and child care by helping to monitor at-risk patients, especially those with a high BMI. Under the co-development agreement, the companies will integrate Monica’s latest signal acquisition technology into the Philips Avalon CL product platform, continuing to advance maternal and child care by helping to monitor at-risk patients.
The solution will join Philips’ existing portfolio of solutions designed for advanced cableless monitoring and connected care across the health continuum, from healthy living and prevention, to diagnosis, treatment, recovery and home care. Philips recently launched its cableless fetal monitoring solution, the Avalon CL. The Avalon CL cableless fetal monitoring system allows moms to move freely during labor and offers them more flexible birthing options.
The system feeds continuous vital information, while giving moms the freedom to roam, not tethered to a monitor. It measures and transmits fetal movement and heart rate, uterine activity, and fetal or maternal ECG. As an integral part of our obstetrical and fetal monitoring and information management portfolio, Avalon CL is designed to work with Philips Avalon monitors.
