AirStrip Buys Sense4Baby
San Antonio-based mobile healthcare application developer AirStrip announced this morning that it has acquired the assets of Sense4Baby, a developer of a wireless fetal/maternal monitoring system. Financial terms of the buy were not announced. Sense4Baby's products are used to monitor high risk pregnancies outside of hospitals. AirStrip said that Sense4Baby's products--which were 510(k) cleared and CE marked in 2013--will allow women to undergo non-stress testing to monitor fetal and maternal heart rate and contraction patterns at physician's offices, clinics, and in ambulances. The company also said it hopes to gain approval to extend that to in-home monitoring, as well.
