Learn more about our foetal monitoring technology

The demand for remote monitoring solutions has been sharply rising, whether it be for long-term monitoring of a chronic condition, rehabilitation monitoring or for regular periodic use in sports or industrial work. KYMIRA’s Biomedical Monitoring garments enable remote and continuous monitoring from basic heart rate, through to full medical vital sign monitoring. Full vital sign monitoring includes 1-12 lead ECG, blood pressure, respiration rate, oxygen saturation and basic movement data. By combining these data sets, we are able to contextualise the data and draw more insight.

 

Technology Mission

Our ultimate goal is to develop a predictive diagnostic device that will be able to diagnose an acute cardiac event (such as a heart attack) 48 hours before it occurs. Allowing the wearer to seek medical help to prevent or manage the condition and offering them a much greater chance of survival or a reduction in severity of the episode. Iterative releases will also be made available for non-regulated markets; such as sports, and real-time monitoring and diagnostics in regulated markets such as medical applications.

How It Works

How It Works

Features and Benefits

We took an outdated technology and turned it on its head to create the world’s first textiles-based sensor for the detection of internal movement. Combine this with our proprietary software layer and you have Bumpe® the foetal monitor powered by KYMIRA:

Motion Pixel Sensor Array

Using KYMIRA’s proprietary e-textile production techniques, we create motion pixels that are able to detect micromovements in the womb, non- invasively and continuously.

Movement Categorisation

Data is sent to our cloud software layer where the type of movement is categorised and recorded as a kick, roll or flutter.

Force Calculation

Like with adults, if foetal health is in decline then force of movement can reduce before frequency of movement. This provides an enriched metric of foetal health and enables earlier warning signs to be detected.

Activity Visualisation

It’s one thing to know that you’re proactively monitoring the health of your unborn child, but another to be able to visualise and watch their activity in real-time or playback. Bring Bumpe’s® monitoring to life.

Special Moment Logging

If visualising wasn’t enough, the Bumpe® app will notify you and your loved ones of first moments so that you can see your little treasure grow and develop anywhere in the world.

Easy Insights & Data Transfer

Easily send insights and data to your clinicians or patients at the push of a button.

Research Partner

KYMIRA works with research partners to innovate, refine, test and clinical certify our technologies and the many benefits it can provide. We welcome discussions on research partnerships and for clinical uses of our e-garment technology.

Clinical Partner

We work with clinical partners who are utilising our e-textile garments to complement their existing recovery and rehabilitation programmes. From understanding the wearers body and joint movement potential and development with high accuracy, to monitoring their biomedical state, with levels of exertion or fatigue. Please get in touch to discuss potential use cases and partnerships.

Licensing

Our patented e-textiles and their components can be licensed by companies for use within their research or product ranges. Please get in touch to discuss this opportunity.
