Novii Wireless Patch System

The Novii ™ Wireless Patch System is a maternal/fetal monitor that noninvasively measures and displays fetal heart rate, maternal heart rate and uterine activity—putting patient comfort first while helping to optimize caregiver workflow.

Empowering you and your patients

Patients are looking for more in their birthing experience, and care providers are ready for something new. Empowering caregivers and patients with a solution that puts patient comfort first while helping to optimize caregiver workflow. The Novii Wireless Patch System—it’s time for something different.

Caregiver Benefits

Optimize your workflow


All caregivers should feel empowered by their technology to drive the best possible outcomes. Novii noninvasively detects the Fetal fECG and Maternal mECG rather than fetal heart rate through ultrasound doppler and a separate device for maternal heartrate.

  • mECG and fECG are simultaneously monitored and differentiated, allowing the MHR and FHR to be easily separated to help avoid maternal/fetal coincidence2
  • Uses electromyogram (EMG) signals from the uterine muscle to detect uterine activity UA, Uterine EMG has been shown to be equivilent to TOCO UA3
  • Acquires reliable tracings on high BMI patients by monitoring electrical signals on the patient's abdomen, which are not compromised by high BMI.4

Your Time & Ease of Integration

Novii allows for continuous monitoring of MHR, FHR, and UA.

  • Simple peel-and-stick design that doesn't doesn't need to be repositioned once the initial signal is acquired.
  • Enables patients to walk or move to other upright positions which may help improve the effectiveness of contractions and reduce the length of labor1.
  • No additional equipment needed to acquire MHR with Novii.


The Novii Wireless Patch System is an is an intrapartum maternal/fetal monitor** that noninvasively measures and displays fetal heart rate (FHR), maternal heart rate (MHR), and uterine activity (UA). Novii provides the opportunity to enhance your current Labor and Delivery monitoring experience. It connects to the Corometrics 259cx Series Maternal/Fetal Monitor and allows data to flow seamlessly to your existing surveillance and archival system. Novii has three components: the Novii Patch, Novii Pod, and Novii Interface.
