During a year long project, my team and I designed a convenient, sophisticated and inexpensive alternative to tocodynamometers, a device that monitors the frequency and duration of a woman’s uterine contractions as she is going into labor, to be used in home or in low resource areas. Tocodynamometer Application Patient Portal We aimed to detect uterine contractions using silver nitrate electrodes, which relay information to an Android device to provide clearer, portable data readouts for the doctor. By using electrodes, the placement of the device will remain stable making it easier for healthcare professionals to use. Consequently, patients will be liberated from wires and belts typically used in tocos, enabling their freedom to move.
