iF concept design award 2013

The “kangaroo incubator” is a piece of medical equipment designed to care for premature and new-born babies. The design was inspired by kangaroos, which carry their young in their pouches with direct body contact: this incubator imitates the body shape, warmth and heartbeat of the mother. As a result, the kangaroo incubator also supports the emotional development of the premature baby.

I feel truly honored and thankful for this award

I hope our product can help people who have a problem

from now on, i'll work hard to be a good designer

thank you for everything
