Monica Wins Exporter Award

Mar 24 2010

University of Nottingham spin-out Monica Healthcare Ltd won the ’New Exporter’ Award at the East Midlands International Business Awards 2009, after outstanding export success with its new healthcare technology. The East Midlands International Business Awards recognise the best businesses across the region which are trading internationally and making a real impact on overseas markets. The awards are hosted by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), which brings together the work of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.

Spun out from the University in 2005, Monica has developed miniature wireless technology which can monitor the well-being of a mother and her unborn baby. Monica’s AN24 wireless foetal-maternal monitoring device is the culmination of 15 years of research in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at The University of Nottingham. Based in Nottingham’s Biocity, the
company has seen its product, launched 2008/2009 procuring export sales accounting for 95 per cent of turnover — with early success in Europe, the Gulf and Australasia following successful regulatory approval.

Dr Barrie Hayes-Gill, Associate Professor in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and one of the original inventors and Dr Carl Barratt, Chief Executive of Monica Healthcare Ltd, were on hand at the ceremony to collect their award from guest speaker and former rugby star Matt Dawson.
