Project: SAVING LIVES! A home-care device for early warning in case of preterm delivery.

Child delivery is one of the most precious moments of life, yet of the most dangerous. Preterm birth is the major cause (63%) of child mortality and morbidity in the EU. Drugs to suppress preterm delivery are available but only work when given at the right time. This is where we step in! We will develop a monitoring device to measure uterine contractions (separate them from ‘false alarms’) allowing proper drug administration. Finally leading to a self-care device reducing preterm birth.
