We spent two years figuring out how to offer this drape! The drape offers a sterile field as well as a way to measure blood loss.
The obstetric drape comes in sterile packaging and folds out to a 1x1 meter sterile area for a woman to give birth. At the bottom of the sterile area is a pouch that holds more than 2500 mL of fluid, allowing for accurate measurement of postpartum blood loss. The pouch itself also includes a flexible plastic filter to 'catch' material that is not liquid.
This version of the obstetric drape starts at 50 mL measurements of postpartum blood loss for extremely accurate measurements for research and other purposes.
Part of our goal as a hub is to collect, categorize and highlight innovation for maternal and neonatal health. We will feature high-tech for a low price or low-tech for a very lower price. We will cover extremely creative or just highly practical ideas. And we categorize innovations in the pipeline or still in research and development versus those that are on the market. Soon Maternova will be interactive, allowing comments from the field on priority
