Mockingbird / death/suffocation prevention


Mockingbird is a wearable device that saves from a sudden death of babys and young children until 3 years. It‘s possible to predict a vomiting trough distinctive undulating muscle movements at the belly. Mockingbird can recognise them and gives a signal - that allows the infants to“cry for help“ and makes the parents sleep more comfortable. It also collects data about breathing, heartfrequency, laying-position and body temperature. Due to any negative changes or in cases of emergency Mockingbird will react and warn the parents.
