Abstract: A relevant concern for people going through a pregnancy is the risk of fetal mortality, also known as stillbirths. During this project, we developed a prototype of the mobile application for a system called SenseTive. This system aims to reduce the risk of stillbirths and consists of a mobile application together with a sensor kit that measures critical data of both the birthing parent and the child. The data will be measured and displayed in the application and by having access to critical data during the pregnancy, it is believed that early signs of complications can be detected and therefore treated earlier. The project resulted in a prototype with most of the intended functionality implemented. The mobile application is cross-platform, meaning it is available for both iOS and Android devices. The application can virtually measure the heart rate of the birthing parent and fetus and store the readings both locally and remotely in a backend service. The prototype contained the functionalities that were necessary to partake in Negentropy’s clinical studies of the application taking place in the autumn of 2021.
