Owlet Baby Care has created the worldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first baby Ã¢â‚¬Å“smart sockÃ¢â‚¬ that transmits a childÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s heart rate, oxygen levels, skin temperature, sleep quality, and sleep position (rollover alerts) to a parentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s smartphone or other internet-based device.
Kurt Workman Owlet Founder/CEO and father of a baby on the way; first had the idea when caring for his twin cousins who were born prematurely. He also had a cousin pass away from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. The worry of whether or not an infant was getting enough oxygen was a personal one that hit close to home.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Every parent knows what itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s like to lay in bed and stress about whether your child is breathing,Ã¢â‚¬Å“ says Jacob Colvin, Owlet Founder and father of two.Ã‚ Ã¢â‚¬Å“Hearing my sick child wheezing all night long because of serious RSV is one of the hardest experiences I have ever had, knowing I couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t do anything for her. Ã‚ If we can help one parent or one child, all our effort would be worth it.Ã¢â‚¬
The Owlet Vitals Monitor is also the first Ã¢â‚¬Å“wearable technologyÃ¢â‚¬ in the infant space and is especially unique because it applies a safe, proven hospital technology in a new way: utilizing multiple sensors, so it can grow with your child. Ã‚ The monitor will continue to work as long as it fits the childÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s foot, and it has been beta tested on infants up to two years old.
