The Tap4Life team do research on their products to assess the quality of the products and the feasibility. We publish our results in peer-reviewed academic journals.
NeoTap applications for android and Iphone are mobile applications for health staff delivering babies in both high and low-resource setting. Our aim is to improve adherence to guidelines, improve registration and decision-making at the time around birth.
We have invented new feature like:
- Color-coded heart rate assessment by tapping the screen of the phone
- Color-coded interface that keeps track of time/Apgar
- NeoPacer- pacing the ventilation rhythm and CPR interventions
- Advanced logbook that you can send to your e-mail after resuscitation
At the moment we have developed two app:s. One for Android and iPhone smartphones, NeoTapLS, and one for Ipad, NeoTapAS. For more information read the specific pages for each application.
The interface of NeoTapLS is designed to be visible even if a latex glove protects the phone. Health workers today carry their own mobile devices also in low resource settings. Global multi-platform download will make NeoTap-applictions available for free and help saving lives even in the most remote and ill-equipped areas.
Monitoring equipment for newborn including pulsoximeters and APGAR timers are costly and ill adapted for use in low-income settings. No device pacing the ventilation rhythm exits on the market today. Posters highlighting the essential steps of resuscitation are not giving enough guidance, and are rarely used during resuscitation. NeoTap integrates the essential information needed in newborn resuscitation in midwifes own mobile phone and necessitates no probes to be attached to the baby.
