Elgin, IL June 7, 2019 -Clinical Computer Systems, Inc. (CCSI), entered into a cooperation agreement with Huntleigh Healthcare Limited to sell the new OBIX BeCA Fetal Monitor, pending FDA510K clearance, in the United States.
Huntleigh, established in the U.S. with their globally recognized handheld Dopplers, see CCSI as the ideal partner to expand its reach into the hospital market. Andy Head, Global Business Development Manager at Huntleigh comments, “This relationship is very exciting for both organizations. Pairing CCSI’s innovative perinatal software with our technology and experience, this new fetal monitor will help clinicians deliver the best obstetric care.” Darren Meilak, Huntleigh’s Marketing Manager adds “We are looking forward to working with CCSI and assisting hospitals in the care of their moms. It’s a testament to the strength of Huntleigh’s brand that CCSI chose to work with us. Our wealth of experience, credibility, quality, and strategic thinking complements their approach to help support and improve perinatal healthcare.”
The OBIX BeCA fetal monitor contains Huntleigh’s unique, patented “Locate and Track” technology that easily detects and maintains contact with the fetal heartbeat. This, combined with high sensitivity ultrasound transducers, supports fetal monitoring in antenatal and labor settings for moms with difficult assessments, such as early gestation or elevated BMIs.
In addition to the fetal monitor, this relationship also brings the launch of the OBIX Freedom, a wireless transducer solution. This can be used in conjunction with the OBIX BeCA fetal monitor. The wireless option allows mom to be untethered from cables while resting in bed, freedom to ambulate or to settle into a more comfortable position and may also safely submerge for waterbirth monitoring.
“We are very excited to be working with Huntleigh to bring this new patient-focused fetal monitor to the United States maternity-care market. The BeCA fetal monitor, with its emphasis on patient comfort and care, will be a welcome addition to the current competitive landscape available to hospitals and clinics,” says CCSI Vice President, Business Development Rick Daniells.
