A Miniaturized, Dermal-adhesive-based Device for Position-independent, Non-invasive Fetal Monitoring
A system for fetal position-independent, non-invasive fetal monitoring includes a plurality of disposable adhesive patches for placement on an expectant mother's upper and lower abdomen. Each of the patches includes one or more miniature electronic devices embedded within the adhesive patches to detect: (i) heart sounds of a fetus within the mother, (ii) heart sounds of the mother, and (iii) signals indicative of uterine contractions of the mother. A processing hub having a receiver to receive signals from the plurality of patches, wherein the processing hub receives and processes primary signal from the primary patch and the secondary signals from the secondary patches to triangulate the location of the fetus, cancel noise in the primary signal and increase the amplitude of the primary signal for more reliable reporting.
