Qbe / prenatal heart monitor

Qbe
Qbe

Most prenatal heart listeners are designed for home use, which are portable unfriendly. Thus, expectant mothers have to roll up their clothes to use the device, and make an awkward moment in public areas. Qbe comes with a handhold portable monitor and a flexible censoring pad. Simply applying the pad to pregnant employed women’s belly, the baby’s heartbeat and movement can be monitored. Meanwhile, the data will be transferred to the monitor through Bluetooth technology. Qbe makes it very convenient for pregnant employed women where they don’t have to feel embarrassed flipping up their clothes in public.
