The Perinatal Pal app allows the user to:
- Visualize the cardinal movements of labor using 3D animation.
- Interact with the 3D model to demonstrate various fetal positions in the maternal pelvis (LOP, LOT, LOA, ROP, ROT, ROA).
- Interact with the 3D model to visualize station of the presenting part from minus 3 to plus 3.
- Educate pregnant women about fetal position, station, and cardinal movements in order to promote maternal movement and upright postures to enhance the progress of labor.
The app is created and available from the British Columbia Institute of Technology's School of Health Sciences Specialty Nursing Faculty and is available HERE.
Well done BCIT!
