Detroit, MI (PRWEB) October 08, 2013
SafeToSleep(R) (http://www.SafeToSleep.com) maker of the first home baby monitor that uses a smartphone to monitor an infant’s breathing and alert parents of dangerous breathing events, has been named as a finalist for the 2013 Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) Innovation Award. The JPMA is the juvenile industry’s central and most powerful resource for product certification, safety, and training, making the JPMA Innovation Award one of the industry’s most influential and coveted prizes. Finalists were selected by a committee of trade and consumer media representatives and industry retail buyers that evaluated cutting-edge products submitted by companies around the world. A small number of products moved to the final round based on their innovation, marketability, trend-setting potential, appeal, and usefulness. Winners will be announced during a reception at the 2013 ABC Kids Expo with Fit Pregnancy on October 15th.
The only baby monitor of its kind, the Sleep and Breathing Monitor from SafeToSleep uses patented sensor technology to sense a baby's breath rate and relay the data to a smartphone or tablet in real time. The system continuously analyzes a baby’s breathing pattern and will alert parents if the baby begins breathing too slow, too fast, or if the baby stops breathing altogether. The smartphone app includes digital features that generate reports on a baby’s total sleep time and sleep quality, allowing parents and doctors to care for babies in ways that have never before been possible. The patented technology has been hospital tested and clinically validated to be as accurate as the wired cardiorespiratory monitors used in pediatric units around the world.
“The JPMA Innovation Award is the most significant award any baby product can receive and we are humbled to have been selected as a finalist,” said Dr. Ryan Santangelo, Co-Founder of SafeToSleep. “We know that our monitor is keeping babies safe and we are so thankful that our work is making such a positive difference for families around the world.”
The $299 Sleep and Breathing Monitor comes packaged with the wireless and portable SleepMat, a cotton cover, and a handheld Parent Unit for non-smartphone users. The free SafeToSleep app works on all Bluetooth-enabled Apple and Android smart devices. SafeToSleep products can be purchased at brick and mortar retailers across the United States and Canada or online at Target.com, BabiesRUs.com, Amazon, or at the company’s website http://www.safetosleep.com/shopping.
