Oxygen and Heart Rate Baby Monitor Meets $100k Crowdfunding Goal; Next Goal: Saving Infant Lives
Date:9/18/2013

Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) September 18, 2013

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome is the number one cause of infant death from one month to a year. Researchers hope that with the newly possible 'Owlet Data Set' they will be able to make discoveries that have never before been possible. Owlet Baby Care has created the world’s first baby “smart sock” that transmits a child’s heart rate, oxygen levels, skin temperature, sleep quality, and sleep position (rollover alerts) to a parent’s smartphone. This device will not only be a big help for sleep-starved parents but also a huge help for data-starved researchers.

Its been three weeks since the online launch of Owlet Baby Care. In this short time they were able to sell over $130,000 worth of product on their website’s crowd funding campaign. “This really has been a grass roots movement,” says Kurt Workman Founder/CEO and father of a baby on the way, “ Parents knew that this product would not come to fruition unless we reached our goal of $100,000, and so they graciously shared our project on their social networks and anywhere they could. We could never have done this without such a supportive community.”

Saving Infant Lives

Owlet’s mission is to do good in the world while creating products that simplify parenthood.

Owlet Baby Care with its new 800+ users will have created the largest set of infant health data the world has ever seen. More data will mean better research and that could mean life saving discoveries by the research community.

“We are really excited by all the scientists and researchers who have reached out to us with the desire to put the Owlet Vitals Monitor’s data to good use,” says Kurt Workman. He continues, “The largest cause of infant death from one month to a year is SIDS or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, the fact that it is a syndrome means nobody knows why all these babies are dying every year. We hope that Owlet’s data set
