ChoiceMonitor your patient without putting restrictions on labor and birthing choices. Empower your patients to do what is best for them and provide flexible choices during labor. The Novii Patch and Pod, when connected, are waterproof and can be left in place during a bath or shower.* For those patients receiving an epidural placement, monitoring can continue unrestricted by cords or belts. Empower your patients with choice.
Novii enables freedom of movement with a belt-free laboring experience that can help empower patients and enable caregivers. Monitoring does not need to restrict patients from the freedom to choose their laboring position and ambulatory activity. Patients can have the freedom to move unassisted about the room while getting the gentle care needed from caregivers. When your patients are resting or just enjoying a private moment with a loved one, Novii’s "no-repositioning" technology allows patients the freedom to labor without the need for transducer repositioning once a good connection has been established.
MobilityNovii enables mobility which may help decrease the length of labor1. Novii leverages digital innovation to wirelessly communicate patient data, removing the need for cords between the patient and the fetal monitor. Create a wireless experience for your patient and empower your patients with Novii mobility.
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
- 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.

Novii PatchThe Novii Patch is a single-use, peel-and-stick, disposable part which attaches to the woman’s abdomen using adhesives. The patch incorporates ECG electrode areas which pick up ECG and EMG signals from the skin surface and then transfers them to the Novii Pod.
Novii InterfaceThe Novii Interface is a reusable part that translates Bluetooth® data transmitted by the Novii Pod into signals of the correct format to input to your fetal monitor with simple fetal monitor connection options. The Novii Interface also has a touchscreen and has two bays incorporated into its base for charging and pairing of the Novii Pods.
Novii PodThe Novii Pod is a reusable part which magnetically connects to the Novii Patch to pick up the fetal and maternal ECG and EMG signals and then filters, digitizes and processes them in real time to extract the FHR, MHR and UA data. The pod transmits this data via Bluetooth to the Novii Interface.
