Launched in 2017, NemoCare is a wearables startup that aims to prevent neonatal and maternal deaths in the developing world. Starting from the design, device component, to functioning, NemoCare’s smart baby monitor has technology embedded to its core and is backed by a team of user experience and user interface (UX/UI) designers, software programmers, and embedded engineers. Focussed on building a less skill-intensive device, NemoCare smart baby monitor can be scaled up with software over air updates to track a particular disease, sending out timely updates, and reports. The device also provides stimulation in the form of a haptic vibration on the baby’s foot, as the first step towards distress management when an apneic episode is detected, helping doctors in time-bound emergencies.

    A YourStory list of startups in 2019 with groundbreaking ideas that are creating a deep impact.
    Healthtech is an emerging sector in India and innovative startups such as NemoCare are reimagining healthcare services in the country by making the lives of the caregivers, as well as, the patients better and easier. NemoCare is aimed at creating innovative healthcare solutions for emerging markets. The startup’s first product is a connected system that uses smart wearables for continuous and centralised monitoring of newborns. Using a proprietary deep-learning algorithm, the device maps the vital parameters to detect distress conditions including apnea and hypothermia. This helps minimise the burgeoning load on nurses to physically monitor the newborns and provide quality neonatal care. The system can be connected to a platform that collects the data and relays it to a nursing station, where nurses can centrally monitor multiple babies through a single interface. When a distress condition is detected, the device sends out an audiovisual alarm to the nursing station, allowing timely medical intervention. The intelligent platform thus, helps users collect, store, visualise, and analyse the data generated, aimed at creating a paradigm shift in clinical diagnostics and preventive care through a data-driven approach. Aiming to marry technology with public health, NemoCare is committed to tackling the feedback loop that extends from the early stages of technology development to clinical field studies. The product, launching early next year, will be priced at Rs 20,000 on the company’s B2B platform. NemoCare is also exploring another model that would give out the hardware for free upfront and charge on the usage of consumables.
