About Medicradle 2024-01-17T14:32:15-05:00


MediCradle is a new type of infant incubator that has been designed to work in the challenging conditions of developing countries.

Currently, our eleventh prototype is undergoing testing and modification at F2 Labs in Maryland. Our expectation is that by early 2024, the MediCradle incubator  will be certified, meeting all IEC standards. The prototype will then undergo specific medical clinical testing to assure all necessary conditions are met at which point, we will be looking to ramp up full production. Stay tuned for details!

What else is needed?


Our goal is to fundraise for the construction of these units so that developing countries do not have to pay for them. We are hoping to have MediCradle incubators available for a cost of $3,500 each – a fraction of the cost of most other new incubators. Once development costs are covered and production is underway, your contribution will help to lower the cost of each MediCradle, in order to make as many of these devices available as possible to those clinics and hospitals who so desperately need this life-saving device.
