Redesigned Fetal Monitoring Accessory Invented by InventHelp Client (OCC-202)

Share Article

InventHelp is working to submit this client's idea, the PREGNANCY BELT, to companies for their possible feedback.

Bringing a new baby into the world has to be one of the most rewarding experiences not only for the mother-to-be, but also for hospital's staff involved before and during the delivery process. Providing comfort to the mother while also monitoring the safety of the unborn child during labor is every medical provider's ultimate goal. However, this can often be quite a challenge. That is why an inventor from California called on her difficult pregnancy experience to help other women avoid unnecessary stress over the condition of their unborn child.

She developed the PREGNANCY BELT to provide improved care for pregnant women, especially those with high-risk pregnancies. It is specifically designed as a more comfortable way to track uterine contractions and monitor the fetal heartbeat. Since it apprises doctors of difficulties with the patient or the fetus during labor, it helps save lives and reduce risk of injury to a fetus in distress. At the same time, it provides peace of mind for pregnant women regarding the health of their baby. In addition, it eliminates the need of having medical staff in charge from unnecessarily having to check in with the patient constantly. It also eliminates the need to readjust single heartbeat monitors/transducers after every mother’s movement. The PREGNANCY BELT is safe, effective and easy to use. It is also convenient, reliable and affordably priced.

The inventor’s personal experience inspired the idea. "I invented this accessory after experiencing a difficult pregnancy," she said. "I realized how much more comfortable and convenient it would be for pregnant women to have this type of monitoring capability, particularly when complications arise. Another benefit is being able to move freely while having to use the monitoring device."

The original design was submitted to the Orange County office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
