Patient StabilizerGoal: $5,300This patient stabilizer is used in the physical therapy department to assist patients perform sit-to-stand transfers throughout the day. Sara Stedy enables caregivers to assist sit-to-stand tasks for patients of different sizes and clinical assessments.
Fetal Heart Rate MonitorsGoal: $40,000During late pregnancy and during labor, it is sometimes important to monitor the fetal heart rate, measure contractions, rate, intensity as well as other functions. Fetal heart rate monitoring is a method of checking the rate, rhythm, and the presence or absence of accelerations (increases) or decelerations (decreases) of the fetal heartbeat. This monitoring is extremely important if the fetus is not getting enough oxygen or there are other problems indicating that an emergency cesarean delivery is needed.
