NUVO Group’s INVU Technology used in Study on Prenatal Distress

NUVO Inc. has connected with the University of Utah’s Child Adaptation and Neurodevelopment (CAN) lab to study the effects of prenatal maternal distress on infant health. NUVO received FDA clearance on their proprietary INVU technology which provides remote pregnancy monitoring for both the mother and the baby.

Following extensive R&D to successfully develop the INVU technology, they are happy to commercialize their product and expand research in the scientific community. This study is the first time UNVU is being used to analyze both fetal and maternal heart rate variability. CAN lab will use INVU to measure heart rates in more than 200 women in their third trimesters. The lab wants to research how children develop physical, emotional, and behavioral attributes while in utero. They believe these attributes are linked to the mother’s emotional experiences during pregnancy. INVU offers remote measurement capabilities which expands and diversifies the available study participants and helps to reduce stress caused by doctor’s visits. Amit Reches, CTO of NUVO Group says, “We are thrilled to see our measurement and data capture tools being used in a new and unique way through this partnership with the CAN Lab. At NUVO, this is what we envision for the future of maternal-fetal health—a holistic approach that brings together a variety of providers and disciplines to ultimately improve the health of future generations.”
