San Antonio-based AirStrip, vendor of software to transmit patient data from monitoring devices and electronic health records to a clinician’s mobile device, has acquired a wireless fetal/maternal monitoring product.

The company has bought Sense4Baby Inc. for an undisclosed price. The monitoring system enables physicians practicing outside a hospital to use non-invasive sensors to better monitor high-risk pregnancies. The monitor captures fetal and maternal heart rate and contraction patterns, and also can be used in ambulances. AirStrip expects to seek Food and Drug Administration clearance to offer the technology for home-based monitoring.

The acquisition expands AirStrip’s enterprise-level suite of monitoring software. The company’s flagship product, AirStrip One, combines existing monitoring modules for labor and delivery, cardiology, patient monitors and electronic health records in a single product supporting all settings of care in an organization, according to the vendor.
