Who is Mary?
MARY monitors your child’s breathing and temperature.
MARY is a helper for parents and children. She is there to look after your children whenever is needed. This smart wearable was designed to keep track of the most relevant vital data of your children in a gentle and loving way.
MARY looks like a cute little ladybird and contains high-end sensors that are able to track body-temperature, breathing and body-movement. It is not the intention to surveil your children but moreover to help them communicate how they are. This way parents do not have to hover over their loved ones once they get ill and suffer for example breathing abnormalities (i.e. apnea), chronic disease, fever episodes etc. Mom and dad can remain at peace knowing that they have a companion to look after their children.
MARY uses data transmission via medically acknowledged Bluetooth Low Energy (between sensor and relay-charging-station) and then forwards the information through the GSM-net (2G) to the cloud server which communicates with the sticklett smart-phone app. Alerts can be given as soon as irregularities appear.
The genius smart fashion concept.
The patented sticklett method gives you the possibility to attach MARY, the cute wearable ladybird applique, to the so-called canvas, which is sewn on our sticklett shirts. You can attach and remove it how often you want. If MARY is attached – the shirt becomes smart. If MARY is removed from the shirt’s canvas – the shirt becomes beautiful everyday life fashion. You can get these shirts with different canvas designs.
We have created a special cutting that retains comfort but is as tightfitting as necessary to reliably measure and convey vital-signs. Part of the sticklett shirt is lined with a conductive textile for measuring the body-skin temperature via Infrared Technology. .

Be calm and relaxed – when your child falls ill.
If your child is not feeling well, breathing is always the first vital sign that becomes irregular. Since MARY will notify you immediately when the respiratory rate leaves the normal range, you can react right away – without constantly having to monitor yourself.
The immune system of the person develops until the age of ten. Infants in particular suffer often from
- temperature surges,
- apnea and respiratory diseases,
MARY’s sensors and sophisticated algorithms monitor your child’s breathing and temperature – reliably and throughout the night.
She is a little lucky charm for the whole family!
How exactly does MARY work?
MARY, the ladybird applique, has integrated a small sensing devise with battery and medical sensors, that measure your child’s vital signs without skin contact. If any irregularities occur, you will be notified immediately by an audio alarm signal on your mobile phone.
You can record your child’s breathing and temperature over the long term and evaluate the data for different situations.
Rapid temperature fluctuations
Despite its high reliability and accuracy (approx +/- 0,3° C) MARY does not replace a clinical thermometer. The data-feedback indicates a highly accurate suggestion of the relative temperature variation over a long-time period, with measurement units every 15 minutes. This way MARY recognizes temperature increase unusually fast.
Sleep apnea syndrome
This syndrome is much more often at children – especially in the pre-scholar age – than you think. Kids stop breathing for a short moment and thus do not rest as well as they are supposed to. Our algorithm registers respiratory movements and recognizes breathing stops out of defined range.
Shipping of MARY contains the following:
- smart wearable integrated in a ladybird applique with rechargeable battery and medical sensors,
- relay-charging station as decorative picture frame
- instructions for use
- small tale about Mary to explain Mary in a lovely and child-friendly way
- coupon for a free corresponding undershirt or body in size and design of your choice
- free download-link for the corresponding smartphone app
Quick setup and charging
When unboxing MARY simply connect the relay-charging station to the power supply and put MARY on it. The relay-charging station looks like a decorative picture frame and perfectly harmonizes with the children’s room. MARY will start to charge immediately through wireless charging.
30 minutes of charging – about 48 hours of use.
Mary works together with the special sticklett clothing. The corresponding clothes can be comfortably ordered – at your choice – directly out of the app. We offer a large set of bodys, undershirts, pyjamas in different colours and designs.

How it works?
Help MARY finance the series production!
So that MARY can protect as many children as possible, we are launching a crowdfunding campaign to fund our invention. On kick-starter You can invest in MARY and immediately get a goodie – and hopefully in the near future the opportunity to get MARY first and have your child protected at night. In addition, free updates are planned for all first-time users:
- position detection (e.g. prone or upright position),
- Baby monitor function via level of activity
- sleepwalking recognition
MARY was scientifically evaluated in field tests of the University of Applied Sciences Kärnten: The study results and first user experiences are very promising. Media such as N24, futurezone, KURIER, Kleine Zeitung, Wirtschaftsblatt, all4family, weekend, WOMAN or the Kronen Zeitung already reported about us. Are you also helping us to realize an Austrian invention and to protect children all over the world at night?Visit our Press Corner
