The Bili-Hut™has gone through multiple iterations and is now a working prototype that can meet the requirements for high intensity phototherapyto treat neonatal jaundiceas established by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Our next steps for development include user feedback with pilot trials in high-need areas. Our goal is to continue context-driven design improvements to develop a device best suited to these regions.

Innovation Description

A phototherapy device that can be used "wherever there is a baby in need" requiresa design approach sensitive to underserved contexts. The ideal phototherapy device needsto be lightweight and collapsibleso it can be easily transported.Using commercially available materials andlow-energy consuming LED lightskeeps costs low and allows for battery operation.​Arranging the light array in a radial pattern on a reflective surfaceamplifieslight delivery.
