The most important questions about safety

And clear answers

How does a Babywatcher ultrasound work?

The Babywatcher creates sound, just like any other ultrasound device. It’s pitched so high, that no one can hear it, not even your baby. This is why it’s called ultrasound. The Babywatcher transmits ultrasound and also receives it. Thanks to this echo, the Babywatcher is able to create images and this is what we know as an ultrasound. It has nothing to do with radiation like x-rays.

How safe is ultrasound?

It’s completely safe. Ultrasound has never caused any harm, even though the norm that sets the maximum intensity is a lot higher than it used to be and keeps increasing over the years.

Then why have norms in the first place?

Well the norms are there to prevent any possible risk. During lab tests on mice they found that there’s a risk of warming up tissue and too much heat can be dangerous. The norms help prevent this.

What’s the risk of warming up tissue?

With Babywatcher, the risk is next to nothing. The intensity of the Babywatcher is a lot lower than today’s norms. But also devices like the ones at your gynecologist, are mostly risk free. This is because there is too much movement and too little intensity to warm up. Compare it with trying to make a fire with a piece of paper and a magnifying glass, when it’s cloudy and you’re moving the paper. It’s not going to happen :)

Does Babywatcher meet the standards?

Yes! We have all necessary certifications and we comply with the highest standards.

CE Marking Safe Babywatcher   FDA Marking Safe Babywatcher      TüV Marking Safe Babywatcher      WHO Marking Safe Babywatcher

What’s the intensity of the Babywatcher?

The norms set the maximum allowed intensity and the higher the intensity the better the images. Of course this is perfect for medical examinations but it’s not necessary if you want to take a peek at your baby with Babywatcher. In the table below you can see how low the intensity of the Babywatcher is.

The current maximum allowed intensity is 720 mW/cm2. The maximum intensity of the Babywatcher is only 57 mW/cm2.
