Fetal and Maternal Monitoring

Philips Avalon beltless fetal monitoring solution

Celebrating a Unique Birthing Journey:
Embrace Mobility and Quality Maternal Care with Confidence

Experience the future of fetal monitoring with our Avalon Beltless Solution. Designed for comfort and freedom, it's a cableless, belt-free system that empowers women of all sizes to move, shower, or walk during labor while maintaining critical data accuracy and continuity.

By eliminating the need for constant repositioning and complicated setups with transducers and belts, we employ adhesive electrodes in a single-use patch, gently attached to the mother's belly, to capture vital data during single pregnancies. This allows clinicians to focus on what truly matters: exceptional maternal care.

Embrace Mobility during early stages of labor

Research studies show that ambulation may significantly shorten labor,2,3 reduce the need for pain relief and labor induction drugs3, and decrease the number of episiotomies2. Research also reveals less frequent abnormal heart rate patterns for women in the upright position, as well as less pain and backache4.

With the Philips Avalon beltless solution, a single beltless patch is placed on the woman’s belly and uses electrodes to measure fetal and maternal heartrate and uterine activity. This enables freedom of movement, with no need of re-positioning.

Variety of positions offer choice and comfort

Wireless electronic fetal monitoring technology, or cardiotocography, measures infant heartbeat and uterine contractions and delivers monitoring quality comparable to cabled technology. It allows mothers to choose from a variety of positions that take advantage of gravity, widen the pelvis diameter, alleviate back pressure, or simply provide a higher level of comfort.

Confidently monitor both mom and baby

The Avalon beltless fetal monitoring solution is an essential component of the Avalon CL fetal monitoring system, filled with advanced technology for monitoring, measurements, and transducers.

Helping reduce the confusion between fetal and maternal heartbeats is critical to making informed clinical decisions during labor and delivery. Philips Smart Pulse technology allows you to do just that by automatically comparing the maternal pulse and fetal heart rates without the need for additional sensors like SpO2 and ECG. This means a more gentle, caring experience for both mother and baby.
