Further study details as provided by Meg Hill, University of Arizona:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy of the Novii when compared to the AN24 [ Time Frame: duration of the patient's labor ]
    Both the AN24 device and the Novii device will be placed on the patient's abdomen at the same time. After the patient has delivered their infant, the data from the Novii will be downloaded and checked against that from the AN24 to assess for accuracy of fetal monitoring.

Enrollment: 75
Study Start Date: April 2013
Study Completion Date: January 2014
Primary Completion Date: November 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
AN24 in addition to new device (Novii)

FDA-cleared device (The AN24 device) used in conjunction with the new device (Novii).

Both devices will be placed on the patient's abdomen. Hence the patient acts as their own control.

Device: Novii
The Novii is a modified device with similar technology to the AN24 device already being used in the USA.
Device: AN24

Detailed Description:
This study has one arm, in which Both the FDA - Approved AN24 (Fetal Monitoring device marketed by Monica Healthcare) and the new device (Novii, being investigated in this clinical trial) will be placed on the patient's abdomen. After delivery of the patient's infant, the data will be abstracted from the second device. This data will be compared to the data from the first device for accuracy.
