NeoNook Neonatal Infant C / Neonatal Incubator Accessory

NeoNook Neonatal Infant C
NeoNook Neonatal Infant C

NeoNook enhances preterm infant care through a physiologically beneficial environment and improved breathing assistance.
Preterm infants miss development in their mother’s womb and must recover in the stressful incubator environment. Many infants also require breathing assistance, leaving scars, disrupting recovery, and crucially, reducing healing time in their parents’ arms.
Inspired by ground-breaking research, NeoNook simulates the womb environment and provides the comforting, familiar biorhythms of the infant’s mother. Breathing assistance is also improved, enhancing flow, reducing facial pressure, and enabling easier cradling by parents.
