Robert Garfield is developing a device that electrically stimulates uterine contraction to prevent profuse bleeding postpartum. The device is compact and battery-powered and produces electrical currents, voltages, and pulses specifically targeted at uterine and cervical activity during postpartum hemorrhage. The device will input electrical pulse through electrodes into the patient’s uterus, vagina, or cervix. This will cause postpartum contractions in the uterus, combating uterine atony—the primary cause of postpartum hemorrhage. This device holds potential for use in low-resource and remote areas when prompt action is needed to save mothers’ lives. In April, Garfield received a Gates Grand Challenges Explorations grant to continue development of the device.
