SafeToSleep(R) (http://www.SafeToSleep.com) maker of the first home baby monitor that can monitor the breathing of a sleeping baby and alert parents of dangerous breathing events, has been named as a finalist in the 2013 National Child World Eco Excellence Awards. The Natural Child World Mom’s Lab reviewed and tested hundreds of products from all over the world and rated them on factors such as design, performance, and innovation. The Sleep and Breathing Monitor by SafeToSleep was named as a finalist in two categories for Best Innovation and Best Baby Monitor. The public will select the winners for each category by casting a vote for their favorite product at the Natural Child World Website (links below). The winners will be announced in August 2013 and featured in the Natural Child World September/October issue. Voting ends on July 15th, 2013 at 11.50 PST.
The only baby monitor of its kind, the Sleep and Breathing Monitor from SafeToSleep utilizes state-of-the-art fiber optic 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.
“We are excited to be selected by Natural Child World as a finalist for Best Innovation and Best Baby Monitor of 2013,” says Dr. Ryan Santangelo, Co-Founder of SafeToSleep. “The SafeToSleep monitor really is a great innovation and it is saving lives. We’ve received so many calls from grateful parents telling stories of how their SafeToSleep monitor alerted them in time for them to save their baby. Having first-hand experience with unexpected infant death, there is no greater gift than hearing these stories and knowing that we are changing the course of so many lives for the better.”
The $329 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 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.com, or at the company’s website http://www.safetosleep.com/shopping.
