The Need

When infants are­­ born prematurely, they lack the body fat necessary to regulate their own temperature. So room temperature can feel freezing cold.

In the developed world, these babies are typically placed in an incubator until they’re able to make it on their own. But parents and health care workers caring for hypothermic infants in developing countries are left with few options.

Existing solutions are inaccessible, ineffective, and even dangerous:

But technology alone isn’t enough to save lives.

That’s why we develop partnerships with clinics, governments, and non-profits.

That’s why we integrate the warmer with education and hands-on training.
