Medical facilities in developing countries often have very limited access to medical equipment. What equipment they have may be in poor condition, and may eventually become unusable because replacement parts and repair technicians simply aren’t available.
One of the greatest needs for hospitals and clinics in these areas is infant incubators, as some medical facilities lose up to two infants a day because they are unable to keep the baby warm or breathing clean air during its first few hours or days of life – the very time when these infants are most at risk.
The MediCradle infant incubator has been designed to answer this need. It is very low cost, incredibly durable, automatically adapts to various forms of electrical power, filters its own air, is easily repairable, and conforms to all applicable international IEC standards.
To deliver a MediCradle to every medical facility that could benefit from such a life-saving device. Even if we only deliver one hundred operational MediCradles to facilities in need, the most conservative estimate is that 5,000 infants could be saved each year, or 50,000 infantssaved in the first ten years of use.
Imagine your baby being born prematurely, underweight, or with a condition that makes it difficult for your baby to maintain his own temperature. Your doctor assures you that after a short time in the hospital’s infant incubator, your infant will be fine and ready to go home. That is, unless you live in a country where hospitals and clinics lose countless newborns annually, because they don’t have a working incubator, in which case, your newborn may not survive.
