Portable Healthcare: Obstetrics and Gynecology


Technology plays an increasingly important role in obstetrics, helping to improve the care and outcomes for pregnant women and their babies. Portable ultrasound and fetal monitors have been used in obstetrics and gynecology but as technology evolves, the ability to track the babys progress and identify any potential issues is ever more important. Portable ultrasound machines are small and lightweight, making them easy to transport and use in a variety of settings, such as doctor's offices, urgent care clinics, and even at home. Both portable ultrasound and fetal monitors can be used to provide valuable information about the health of the mother and fetus. They can help to diagnose problems early on and allow for timely interventions. These devices are playing a vital role in improving the quality of care for women and babies.

Benefits of using portable ultrasound and fetal monitors in obstetrics and gynecology:

  •  Flexibility: For use in a variety of settings, including hospitals, urgent care clinics, and home.
  •  Accessibility: Portability reduces the cost of heavy and large foot-prints, reducung the burdon of cost and creating and ease of use.
  •  Decision Making: They are easier to use, which can make them more accessible to healthcare providers in rural and underserved areas.
  •  Faster Diagnosis: They can provide real-time information about the health of the mother and fetus, which can help to improve decision-making.

Breakaway connectors are a simple and effective way to reduce the risk of cart tipping. The solution to this problem is Rosenberger’s breakaway magnetic connectors, including the Rosenberger Power Data Connectors (RoPD®) with magnetic self-mating mechanism, MagCode® PowerSystem and PowerSystemPro, Magnetic RJ45 and MultiMag connectors.


The Right Connector for Medical Diagnostic Mobility

Rosenberger has developed a product family that offers an intelligent alternative to mechanical mating. Our magnetic self-mating connector series provides all common functions and is suitable for power and data transmission, ideal for medical diagnostic carts and trollys. Self-mating breakaway connectors are a simple and effective way to improve the safety of portable medical technology carts. They can help to reduce the risk of cart tipping, equipment damage, and injury. Breakaway connectors are a valuable safety investment for any healthcare organization.

Breakaway connectors offer a number of benefits, including:

  • Reduced risk of cart tipping
  • Reduced risk of equipment damage
  • Reduced risk of injury
  • Improved safety
  • Increased efficiency
  • Reduced downtime

Self-Mating, Fast and Reliable

When the plug is approaching the socket, it is attracted by the magnetic force and virtually slides into the socket by itself. This makes it an efficient and comfortable handling and ensures a correct connection, automatically discover connections and prevent them from tearing out, making them ideal for connections that require repetitive connecting and disconnecting.

Break-Away Function

The break-away function is designed to break the connection should the plug or cable be subjected to an acute tensile force (intentional or unintentional). This avoids the risk of injury to the user and damage to the connectors. The deliberate removal of the plug is also fast and simple due to the break-away function.


The MagCode® series is ideal for exterior connectors on mobile/portable medical and diagnostic systems.

In contrast to conventional connectors MagCode® Systems use head contacts instead of pins an sockets. MultiPort and MultiClip are self-finding by use of the integrated coded permanent magnets, which also guarantee a perfect alignment. Since all elements for the generation of the contact pressure are located within the MagCode MultiClip the MagCode MultiSystem is ideal for contacting printed circuit boards and modules with injection-molded contacts. Rosenberger's MagCode® PowerSystem and MagCode® PowerSystemPro ensure safe and reliable magnetic connection to 12V and 24V external power sources.
