 An innovative product by Doppli Connect

Doppli Connect is a startup from Alicante dedicated to MedTech -technological development for the medical sector-.

Its innovative technology, validated in more than 200 pregnant women, allows to detect the baby's heartbeat thanks to its smart sensors, without the need for gels, so it can be used anytime, anywhere. The device automatically sends the data via bluetooth to a smartphone through the app and in turn to the medical platform where they will be checked by specialised medical staff. If there are any problems, they will proactively contact the pregnant woman.

Every year there are 7 million pregnancies in the European Union, 4.3 million in the USA and 10.1 million in Latin America. The incidence of premature births and miscarriages is 8.3% globally at a total cost to the system of 35.8 billion euros. They estimate that Doppli, with its technology, could reduce 50% of these complications.

The operation

Doppli is one of the three selected in the II call for investments in startups launched by the BStartup programme. The third call for applications closed on 20 May and 146 applications have been submitted and are currently being analysed.

The investment in the startup will amount to 250,000 euros and, as Roberto García comments, this investment will go towards the integration of the technology in a textile substrate, medical certifications and patents, equipment expansion and the manufacture of the first units, which will be on the market by the end of summer 2021.
