Why WinSenga?

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
