Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9965004A1] A monitoring system in particular for infants comprises intercommunicating child and mother stations (14, 16), the mother station (16) containing data pertaining to both mother and her infant (10) and the child station (14) being attached to such infant (10) at birth, preferably to its umbilical stump (20) by a monitor (12)/clamp (18) and containing data regarding the infant (10), such that an association is established between the mother and child stations (14, 16). The association may be established by the provision of matching encoded data strings, assisting in guarding against the mismatching of mother and infant (10) after completion of the birthing process. In a preferred embodiment, an alarm is given in the event that the mother and child stations (14, 16) become separated beyond a predetermined distance. Also disclosed are a local control station (22) and a central control station (24) communicable with the system.
