Rea provides the latest diagnostic technology to detect a risk
of a preterm birth

Preterm birth is one the main

challenges in healthcare

Prematurity is the main cause of death of infants, while children born preterm are likely to have long-term neurological and developmental disorders.

Half of the women that deliver a preterm baby have no risk factors and present no symptoms. Meaning that it’s impossible for them and their doctors to foresee a preterm birth.

1 out of 10 women deliver preterm

Doctors don’t know which of their patients will deliver preterm.

Therefore, 85% of the hospitalised women considered under PTB risk do not deliver within the next 7 days.

To diagnose a preterm birth, doctors have to wait until a patient show symptoms, but 50% of the cases are completely unexpected.

Preterm birth risk assessment is a major challenge in obstetrics care, being the first cause of perinatal mortality and morbidity.

Half of all premature kids are born without preventive-medical intervention.

  • In Switzerland, 33% of infant deaths occurred among infants born preterm (BFS.admin.ch).
  • In the US, 66% of infant deaths occurred among infants born preterm (CDC.gov).
