Since our opening day in 2006, we have been working hard to add high quality products to our inventory that meet the needs of our clients.
We were so pleased to recently see Fetalbeats, a fetal doppler company that was profiled on Dragon’s Den. Their dopplers and applicable smartphone app were created for “entertainment purposes” and for use later in pregnancy at 17 weeks and beyond. This national coverage of the availability of Fetal Dopplers for use at home was great to see.
The Fetal Dopplers we carry in our inventory were selected based on a few criteria.
- Safety– although a doctor’s prescription is not required in Canada to rent a fetal doppler for home use, we have decided to only carry the same Medical Grade, high quality fetal dopplers that the Doctors and Midwives in Canada use.
- Early Detection– many of our clients have unfortunately sufferred a pregnancy loss in the past and are looking for early detection and reassurance early on after they have visited their doctor or midwife. Our Dopplers are able to detect the fetal heartbeat from 9-12 weeks on.
- Quality– The fetal dopplers are a medical device and although they are very simple to operate, we have chosen units that have a high sound quality and use ultrasound technology to detect the fetal heartbeat.
If you are looking for a local company providing high quality, medical grade fetal doppler rentals please contact us at www.OneTinySuitcase.ca
At One Tiny Suitcase, Canada’s premier baby equipment rental company, we have always chose to carry the highest quality products for rental. There are always going to be cheaper products on the market but we strive to give our customers excellent quality products at competitive prices.
Our Fetal Doppler Rentals are a good example of where we have sourced out the best quality products we can offer. Our NICOLET and HUNTLEIGH fetal dopplers are the exact same brands that the Doctors and Midwives choose to use on their patients in Canada.
Most consumers don’t realize the difference between the Doppler Rentals we carry and other brands that you can purchase online for around $100. As with many things, you get what you pay for.
Many of those devices say they have FDA approval but only devices with their Canadian Medical Device licenses are approved for use in Canada. The Canadian designation is important because:
Health Canada reviews medical devices to assess their safety, effectiveness and quality before being authorized for sale in Canada.
Our dopplers are made in the USA, carry all the required licenses and approvals for use and sale in Canada. They are Medical Quality and come with either a 2MHZ or 3MHZ probe for early detection.We carry only the brands used by Doctors and Midwives in Canada so that you and your health care practitioner are familiar with the machine. We often encourage our clients to take their doppler rentals into their next medical appointment.
