Abstract

A novel electronic sensor system is designed to continuously monitor the dilation of the cervix ofa pregnant female approaching labor and delivery. The system is capable of wirelessly transmitting the progress of dilation to a central monitoring agency that can get in touch with the attending physician and/or the hospital of the pregnant female. Using wireless telephony, the monitoring agency and/or the physician can advise the female about the medical care she needs at that moment, even though the female might be at her home, or away from home and away from the medical facility.
