The Bambi Belt Solution
The Bambi Belt Solution is a soft fabric, skin-friendly, wireless neonatal vital signs monitoring system that accomplishes the same functions as wired adhesive electrodes currently used in NICUs. The belt functions by being wrapped around babys chest. Sensors integrated inside the belt measure critical data in a non-intrusive way, while a small sensor module and basestation allow wireless data transmission to existing patient monitors. The soft, non-sticky texture of the belt helps to reduce pain and stress of the babies, while its wireless feature allows parents to take the baby out of the incubator for Kangaroo Mother Care.
