The 'Thread' System Gives Parents Pregnancy Updates

This prenatal monitoring system checks up on the status of a soon-to-be mother's fetus.

The 'Thread' system comes with three separate devices -- the first of which is a wearable that senses and analyzes the fetus' "sleeping state and emotions based on movement." This information can be given to health professionals and the tech also allows the mother to speak to the fetus. Another device is meant for traveling fathers and alerts them when the fetus is awake -- the device also mimics the movements of the fetus so the father can feel them. The final component of this system is the accompanying app, which stores information, provides information and explains fetal growth.

This prenatal monitoring system ensures that soon-to-be parents are completely in tune with the fetus' health and progress.
