Jeddah Season 2024 gets underway with dazzling fireworks show

JEDDAH: The University of Jeddah has developed a device that detects premature birth using Internet of Things (IOT) and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, according to the Saudi Press Agency.

The innovation calculates the percentage of amniotic fluid in the fetal sac and also identifies potential problems in the fetus at an early stage, enabling early medical intervention and improving outcomes by supporting fetal lung development and placental health.

An innovation in which Dr. Qamar Nayteh and Dr. Youssef Al-Sohafi, from the College of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Jeddah, won a gold medal in addition to a special international award during his participation in the Romanian International Exhibition of Inventions, Innovations and Technologies, SPA said.

“This demonstrates the effectiveness of Saudi innovation and its ability to compete on a global level,” the report said.

As explained in the report, the medical innovation works to provide continuous health monitoring, which reduces hospital visits and ensures immediate medical care when needed.

“It uses advanced ultrasonic sensor and AI technologies to ensure high accuracy, avoid false alarms and be able to monitor remotely,” the report said.

It also allows healthcare providers to monitor the patient’s condition through mobile phone apps, reducing the need for frequent hospital visits.

In addition, it is an easy-to-use interface and allows pregnant women to easily monitor amniotic fluid levels at home, the report said.
