FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OBMedical® Company Announces LSR Healthcare Pty Ltd is now the exclusive dealer for
LaborView® in Australia and New Zealand
May 4, 2017 Newberry, Florida USA– OBMedical Company, a leader in external maternal-fetal
monitoring systems for laboring women, is pleased to announce LSR Healthcare Pty Ltd (LSR
Healthcare) has been designated as the exclusive LaborView dealer for Australia and New
LaborView provides wireless, non-invasive electronic fetal monitoring via surface electrodes on
the maternal abdomen to measure fetal heart rate, contractions, and maternal heart rate. The
system is cleared by the FDA for use in the US for all mothers, regardless of BMI. LaborView is
presently in use in a growing number of hospitals in the US and has been highly favored by the
nurses who are using it.
LSR Healthcare is a Sydney-based company that specializes in the maternal/infant care market.
LSR Healthcare’s Director, Matthew Etherington, commented “high BMI rates are a consistent
problem in Australia. The combined populations for Australia and New Zealand are just under
30 million with approximately 360,000 births per year. Similar to the U.S. more than 56% of
Australian women are considered overweight, with a BMI greater than 25 and 27% are
considered obese with a BMI of greater than 30.”
Loris Gardiman, LSR Healthcare’s Sales Manager, states “LaborView is a reliable wireless
monitor for mothers of all sizes, and as such, a valuable option for maternal infant care in
Australia and New Zealand.” LaborView is expected to be available for sale later this year after
completion of all required regulatory processes and registration such as the Australian Register
of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG), including New Zealand equivalents.
Kevin O'Connor, VP of Sales and Marketing, commented that “OBMedical is excited to be
working with such a strong and well-respected partner in LSR Healthcare, as we team to
provide world-class wireless monitoring solutions to healthcare providers and patients
throughout Australia and New Zealand."
