Figure 1 On the left, a scheme represents the position of the electrodes on the maternal abdomen. 8 sensing electrodes are placed around the navel and 1 reference electrode is placed in the navel itself. The device records the differential voltage between the sensing electrodes and the reference one. On the right, two pictures show possible use scenarios, in the hospital during hospitalization or at home during everyday life. indb 35 01/06/12 9:44 AM 36 The device for data recording and transmission is characterized by an analog preprocessing stage, which consists of pass-band filtering and amplification.
