mHealth Devices Targeting Youngest Users at CES 2013

Mobile innovation in the health space has never been more evident. This week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, countless leading and upstart tech makers alike displayed tomorrow’s tech wonders.

And if you thought today’s mobile device users were young, wait until you see what CES had in store this year.

A company called iBaby Labs was at CES to demonstrate a series of new, highly advanced, and definitely mobile products designed to for parents of babies that have been born… and even those who aren’t yet born.

iBaby HeartSense lets soon-to-be parents monitor their baby’s heartbeat with audio through their Apple iPhone. By placing an egg-shaped fetal doppler on the mother’s stomach, the device purportedly works to safely and effectively capture the baby’s heartbeat.

“These new products are compelling, easy to use and what parents are asking for,” says Adam Lin, iHealth Labs general manager. “The iBaby Monitor M2 and iBaby HeartSense provide parents with a sense of confidence in their baby’s health by tracking their heart rate and providing a mobile window on their child’s life using their iPhone or iPad.”

If you’re not familiar, the iBaby Monitor M2 was a previous roll-out by this company that received widespread praise for giving iPhone users another way to tune into their baby’s bedside monitor.

With more parents than ever seeking mobile solutions in response to a wide array of concerns, there apparently will be no shortage of health-savvy companies right there to meet these growing demands.
