Improving outcomes for mothers suffering from postnatal depression
The Innovation Agency is looking for solutions to the challenge of monitoring new mothers' wellbeing when they return home after the birth of their child. The innovation should help clinicians to pick up on the symptoms of postnatal depression earlier and therefore improve health outcomes.

The O2COMFORT flowmeter offers an innovative answer to oxygen therapy. This device can deliver oxygen in a traditional, continuous manner, but it also contains a comfort mode in which a dose of oxygen is only administered upon inhalation. The comfort settings 1 to 5 give an equivalent therapy of 1 to 5 litres per minute of continuous flow. The flowmeter offers additional advantages over the traditional flowmeter. When in comfort mode, the oxygen delivery follows the natural breath rate of the patient. In this way the O2COMFORT flowmeter increases the wellbeing of the patient while reducing the waste of medical oxygen.
