The primary aim of the CRADLE project was to develop a device capable of accurately detecting abnormalities in vital signs - including blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) - that was also suitable for introduction into LMICs. We then extended this aim to prospectively evaluate the device’s ability to reduce maternal mortality and morbidity by increasing timely referral and initiation of interventions.
