Stimulo, a CataloniaBio & HealthTech member, and a midwife at the Vall d'Hebron University Hospital in Barcelona, Vanessa Bueno, have designed a postural cushion for pregnant women that corrects the malposition of the fetal head during labor.
At the time of delivery, the fetus needs to face head down. But, in about 40% of women, the fetus is facing up. If this incorrect position is not corrected, it is necessary to perform a caesarean section or use forceps.
The origin of this idea is found in a clinical trial carried out by Vanessa Bueno on how to facilitate the rotation of the fetus during childbirth when a malposition occurs, The results of this study have been published in the Birth journal.
Stimulo is focused in innovation and product design for several sectors, and currently has offices in Barcelona and Guangzhou (China). "We work in ground-breaking concepts aligned with the Design Thinking philosophy: desirable, feasible and viable" says Xavier Majoral, Business Developer and designer.
After years of developing new products, Stimulo has created its own innovation process based on deep research and a Creative Lab to generate, evolve, and mature the best possible ideas.
