Making Childbirth Safer
Date:4/27/2011

ATLANTA, April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Trig Medical, Inc. announces the U.S. launch of LaborPro®, the new standard for labor progression management, at the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) 2011 Annual Clinical Meeting, taking place April 30 – May 4, 2011 in Washington, D.C. Trig Medical will be demonstrating the LaborPro system in Booth #824 during exhibition hours.

The LaborPro system combines ultrasound and position tracking technologies, enabling clinicians, the mother and her attendants to see the baby's progress during labor.  Using non-invasive ultrasound scans and position sensors, similar to GPS technology, the system provides accurate assessment of critical labor parameters such as head station, head position (orientation) and head descent during contraction.  These parameters give clinicians the data they need to effectively manage the labor process and reduces the need for uncomfortable manual examinations.

"We are excited to launch the LaborPro system at the ACOG 2011 Annual Clinical Meeting," said Yoav Paltieli, M.D., CEO of Trig Medical, Inc.  "With more than 1,000 births completed to date using the system, we have shown that LaborPro can reduce the risk of complications in childbirth and improve the data clinicians use to make labor management decisions.  We expect the system will be a powerful tool for routine clinical use in the U.S. so that mothers and babies will experience fewer complications during labor."

LaborPro assessments of critical labor progress parameters are proven to be more accurate and objective than the subjective and often inaccurate assessments made through manual examinations.  Clinical trial results from the U.S., France, Germany, Italy and Israel have been published in 13 international papers and abstracts.

The LaborPro system has been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for marketing in the U.S. and has received CE (Conformite Europeenne) Mark approval.  Trig Medical, Inc. has established its U.S. headquarters in Suwanee, Ga., with a focus on U.S. sales, marketing and distribution.  Trig Medical expects to have LaborPro in several of the leading U.S. centers following the 2011 ACOG meeting.
