The data from the test is uploaded to the company's AirStrip ONE platform from where it can be viewed by clinicians using computers, tablets, or smartphones. The University of Utah and Airstrip are working to do an initial trial to test the benefits when it is used at home in both high and low risk pregnancies.

NSTs are common prenatal tests used to check the fetal heart rate performed after 28 weeks of gestation. During a NST, also known as fetal heart rate monitoring, a baby's heart rate is monitored to see how it responds to the baby's movements.
