Butterfly Incubator / Premature Infant Incubator

Butterfly Incubator
Butterfly Incubator

Particularly premature infants have a lack of outer limitation which they normally get in the mothers womb. The Butterfly Incubator uses a professionally integrated hammock that is infinitely adjustable and retracts completely inside the incubator. The outer boundary and the body position, like in the mother‘s womb, helps to calm the baby and supports the sleep which is important for the infants development. The Butterfly incubator provides a closer parent-child contact, especially in the unstable state of the child. The hammock with the baby inside can be taken in the arm, without lifting or disturbing the infants sleep.
