Owlet Baby Care featured on Inhabitots

inhabitotsCongratulations to our Client Owlet Baby Care for their feature on Inhabitots.

Owlet Baby Care has created the world’s first baby “smart sock” that transmits a child’s heart rate, oxygen levels, skin temperature, sleep quality, and sleep position (rollover alerts) to a parent’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  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.  The monitor will continue to work as long as it fits the child’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.
