Public Health Science, Biomedical Moms Research Project seeks participants for data collection in fetal heart rate monitor research

The Department of Public Health Science, along with the Biomedical Engineering Department and School of Nursing, are conducting an interdisciplinary research project centered on developing a fetal heart rate monitor that would be more comfortable, non-invasive and practical for pregnant women.

This project involves non-invasive, external data collection of maternal and fetal heart rate during a data collection session that will take place at the WSU campus.

The data collection will take approximately 40 minutes and can be scheduled at a time that works for you. If you are interested in participating and feel that you meet the criteria listed, complete the survey at the link below. Also, if you know someone who would be interested in participating, feel free to share the link with them.

Inclusion criteria: Women who are 37-40 weeks pregnant

Participants in the data collection will also be able to receive $50 compensation for their time.
