“If pregnancy were a book, they’d cut the last two chapters.”–Nora Ephron
It seems that every other person is wearing a fitness tracker these days. I am one of them. But wearable bio-medical devices aren’t just for normal activity. They are being developed, marketed, and used to monitor a variety of health conditions, seemingly for just about everything and everyone. Now–yes–even unborn babies have a wearable health monitor. Developed an marketed by San Francisco-based Bloomlife, it tracks a variety of parameters during the course of pregnancy. You might call it a fitness tracker for the unborn baby.
In this episode, Bloomlife CEO and co-founder, Eric Dy, talks about the origin and functions of their breakthrough device, where it and the market for wearable health trackers are going, and how he and his partner won a trip to Neckar Island–just one of three companies out of 1300 competing in a tech innovation contest–to present to Richard Branson
