 Researchers Develop A Smartphone App That Uses 'A Sock' To Help Parents Monitor Child's Health

A sock that can help parents monitor their baby's vital signs when he's asleep, was developed by researchers.

The device, created by Salt Lake City-based Owlet Baby Care, provides an up-to-the minute assessment of the newborn's health via smartphone, Fox News reported.

According to the company's co-founder Jordan Monroe, the product is a whole lot different, as with the little electronics that go inside the sock, it can help parents monitor the baby's heart rate, oxygen levels, skin temperature, sleep position, and sleep quality.

The sock not only shares vital signs, but can tell parents if their child needs attention.

Monroe said that the sock can fit any newborn, up to 1 year old.

The device, which comes with a price tag of 250 dollars, is only available for pre-order at the product's website.
