Innovation Description

In LMICs, over 3 million babies die each year simply because they do not have access to incubators that provide heat, phototherapy, and ventilation. This leads to billions of dollar in human and capital loses annually. Currently, there are no affordable, fully functional incubators for low-resource settings. Modern hospital incubators are stationary, large and heavy, and require a constant 110-240V electricity and are prohibitively expensive to purchase and complex to disinfect and to maintain.
