Owlet Baby Care featured on Bloomberg Businessweek

bloombergCongratulations to our Client Owlet Baby Care for their feature on Bloomberg Businessweek.

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.

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.

“Every parent knows what it’s like to lay in bed and stress about whether your child is breathing,“ says Jacob Colvin, Owlet Founder and father of two.  “Hearing my sick child wheezing all night long because of serious RSV is one of the hardest experiences I have ever had, knowing I couldn’t do anything for her.  If we can help one parent or one child, all our effort would be worth it.”

The Owlet Vitals Monitor is also the first “wearable technology” in the infant space and 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.
