WinSenga is a low cost mobile antenatal app that helps increase access to quality
and timely antenatal care and monitor foetal heart rate during labour, especially in
rural areas. The device, which is placed on a women’s abdomen just like a regular
horn, connects to a Windows-based phone running an app that basically plays the
part of an experienced midwife’s ear. The system picks up the fetal heart rate,
transmits it to the phone, and then the phone runs an analysis. The app, developed
in conjunction with medics for the UN agency Unicef then recommends a course of
action, if any, for the mother and her unborn child.
