- WinSenga helps doctors & midwives to accurately and easily monitor pregnancies & childbirth.
- Designed for portability, great user experience & low-resource settings
- GOAL: Make pregnancy & childbirth magical & safe & for everyone, even in low-resource settings.
- A better-equipped midwife/doctor increases the chance of survival by up to 80%
Annually, an estimated 3 million newborn deaths and over 2 million stillbirths occur worldwide, along with 200,000 maternal deaths. Over 60% of these deaths occurred in developing countries, particularly sub-Saharan Africa. Having better equipped medical personnel in low-resource settings is a pivotal step in turning the tide, increasing the change of survival by up to 80%!
We've built a portable tool
that makes monitoring pregnancies and childbirth/labour easier and faster for the midwife/doctor, regardless of how experienced they are.
At a fraction of the cost of alternative technologies like the ultrasound or foetal Dopppler
plugging the gap
an alternative diagnosis tool that is accurate & affordable even to last-mile health centres. Intuitive for use even at home.
an intuitive smartphone-based solution to monitor pregnancy and labour. works offline but connects with cloud when possible
we started off with a $50,000 R&D grant from Microsoft and continue to iterate on WinSenga
we envision a world where the miracle of bringing life into the world is magical and safe for every woman in the world, regardless of their economic standing.
We are about 3 things: innovation, technology and community.
