UPDATED: DuoFertility ovulation prediction system to aid natural conception

Diagnostics

Pregnancy and Childbirth

August 2012


DuoFertility is a non-invasive system that monitors a woman’s basal body temperature to determine the time of ovulation. It is designed for home use by couples having difficulty in conceiving where no cause has been identified. Unlike other temperature-based systems where readings are taken once a day, this device continuously measures a woman’s temperature, using a skin patch sensor worn under her arm. This information, together with information about her sleep/wake cycle, is transmitted wirelessly for analysis. The system helps to identify the most likely fertile days in each cycle – around ovulation.
