Owlet Baby Care has created the worldâ€™s first baby â€œsmart sockâ€ that transmits a childâ€™s heart rate, oxygen levels, skin temperature, sleep quality, and sleep position (rollover alerts) to a parentâ€™s smartphone or other internet-based device. The invention could help to prevent SIDS and alert parents to potential health problems.
Kurt Workman Owlet Founder/CEO and father of a baby on the way; first had the idea when caring for his twin cousins who were born prematurely. He also had a cousin pass away from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. The worry of whether or not an infant was getting enough oxygen was a personal one that hit close to home.
The Owlet Vitals Monitor Â is especially unique because it applies a safe, proven hospital technology in a new way: utilizing multiple sensors, so it can grow with your child. Â The monitor will continue to work as long as it fits the childâ€™s foot, and it has been beta tested on infants up to two years old.
The sock is hypoallergenic, wireless, and doesn’t use any adhesives. The electronic components are housed in a water-resistant, medical-grade silicone case to protect your child from any electrical contact.
