Preterm labor and birth are the primary causes of neonatal morbidities and mortalities. The early detection and treatment of preterm uterine muscular contraction are crucial for the management of preterm labor. In this work, a ring electrode with a wireless electrical recording and stimulating (RE-WERS) system was designed, fabricated, and investigated for the noninvasive monitoring of uterine contraction/relaxation as a diagnostic and therapeutic tool for preterm labor. read more
