Mondevices's baby sleep monitor with wearable technology

Mar '14
Based out of the New York area, Mondevices Inc. has created the baby sleep monitor that fits in a button, creating the first “smart button” wearable technology. This year the “smart button” has won a prize in Smart Clothing category at the Wearable Technologies conference in Munich.
 
This product was also a finalist in the IWC Bluetooth competition in 2012 and was invited to a Freescale booth in CES 2012 in Las Vegas.
 
Monbaby is an award-winning technology that transmits a visual log of a newborn child's breathing motions to parent's smartphone or any other Bluetooth-capable device to ensure peace of mind and sound sleep for all. It can be attached to any article of baby's clothing. The story of Monbaby began when Arturas Vaitaitis, the founder of Mondevices, had his first son 8 years ago.
 
“As a new parent I could not sleep, worrying that something was wrong if everything was quiet. I'd wake up in the middle of the night, worried about SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), and would go up to my son and check that he was sleeping fine, occasionally waking him up in the process. I wished such a product was on a market back then.” For the past two years, the Mondevices team has worked on this product. 
 
Now Monbaby is a fully functional prototype in its 5th iteration, almost ready for manufacturing at a local facility in NJ. The product is expected to begin shipping in October this year.
 
First of a kind
When the Mondevices team began working down this path in 2011, there was no competition, and the team was quick to recognize the potential of the product and the impact it could have on parents and newborns.
 
Now there is a crop of startups that alleviate anxiety of new parents, but Mondevices believes that the Monbaby product is superior, not least because of its universal attachment form factor.
 
The Monbaby monitor looks like a button: a smart button that snaps on anywhere to clothing. This universal enclosure feature makes this technology applicable to all ages. It attaches just as easily to elderly parents’ pajamas as to a child's onesie. Even though this technology can be applied universally, Mondevices developed its first product, Monbaby, for the parents of newborns and young children.
