FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OBMedical® Company Announces Expanded Distribution in the Southeastern United States
February 27, 2018 – Norcross, Georgia, USA – OBMedical Company, a leader in external maternal-fetal monitoring systems for laboring women, has teamed with The BIMECO Group, Inc. to significantly increase its distribution network in the Southeastern United States. OBMedical has developed the LaborView®, an advanced wireless maternal-fetal monitoring system for singleton mothers at 36+ completed weeks. LaborView works non-invasively via surface electrodes on the maternal abdomen to measure both maternal and fetal heart rate as well as contractions. In addition, OBMedical is working on a personal health version of the LaborView that can connect to a smart phone for use in the home.
“The addition of The BIMECO Group, Inc. significantly improves our ability to reach potential customers in the Southeast. We believe that LaborView is the clear choice in wireless fetal monitoring and it has the potential to greatly benefit nurses and moms alike.” said OBMedical CEO Mark Samuels. The FDA-cleared LaborView system is placed on the mother’s abdomen and wirelessly interfaces to most commonly used existing maternal-fetal monitoring bedside units.
A 2014 study sponsored by OBMedical demonstrated that LaborView provides a more reliable interpretation of uterine activity versus Toco when compared to the IUPC and provides more accurate detection of fetal heart rate versus Ultrasound Transducers when compared to Fetal Scalp Electrode.¹
Additionally, patients report improved comfort compared to standard belts used with traditional external monitoring equipment.
