San Antonio-based AirStrip developed the AirStrip OB mobile medical software application as a way to give doctors the ability to track expectant mothers and their unborn babies via their wireless devices.
Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) will sell AirStrip’s software online to qualified doctors at the Apple App Store. Doctors will be able to download the application directly onto their phones. Through the application, doctors are able to remotely access data on the mother and child, including heart rate and contraction patterns as well as notes and exam results. In order for doctors to use the application, a hospital must first buy the AirStrip system, which works with the hospital’s existing patient-monitoring.
The AirStrip OB/iPhone application is already available on PDAs and Smartphones and other Windows Mobile-based devices.
