Smartbeat tracks your baby's breathing by analyzing how the pixels change color every time your baby moves.
Smartbeat can identify more than 16 million shades of color—more than twice as many as you or I can see—so it can track movement that is too slow and subtle to be seen by the human eye.
To give you an idea of just how much analysis this takes, Smartbeat captures 20 frames per second, and each frame contains 2 million pixels, for a total of 40 million pixels analyzed every second.
Smartbeat sounds an alarm if it detects that your baby has stopped breathing for more than 20 seconds—a clinical apnea. Smartbeat sends additional alerts if the breathing rate is high or low enough to be a cause for concern. It also sends notifications when baby has fallen asleep and woken up.
When breathing has stopped, Smartbeat will sound an alarm on your mobile device that goes off even if your phone is in sleep mode, and even if your ringer has been turned off.
Extremely. Throughout the development process, we tested Smartbeat at respiratory simulation labs at the Mayo Clinic, University of Minnesota and Intermountain Healthcare Center. Our clinical trial will be held at Northwestern University's Lake Forest Hospital this spring.
Smartbeat works even with swaddles and blankets. It was designed to work best with safe sleeping practices, so you will get the best results if your baby is in a swaddle, a sleep sack, or other warm pyjamas rather than with loose blankets.
Smartbeat is not FDA approved, but we are working in that direction. Our first clinical trial kicks off this spring at Northwestern University.
Smartbeat can measure breathing on anyone—and anything—that breathes. We have customers who are using Smartbeat to monitor toddlers, children with disabilities, elderly relatives, family members with respiratory issues, and even pets.
Smartbeat will monitor breathing no matter what position your baby is laying in.
Smartbeat does not include a physical viewer because the free app allows you to monitor from your own phone or tablet.
