Cadence / Respiratory care platform


Cadence is a concept for improved respiratory care & breathing support for premature babies in non-critical hospital environments. The compact, height-adjustable solution enhances mobility & flexibility inside the hospital, fosters family bonding and parent engagement (kangaroo care). The clean, integrated design hides most medical components on the inside and therefore gives parents and nurses a feeling of safety while reducing the fear & anxiety of interacting with complicated hospital equipment. Cadence travels with the baby throughout the entire hospital stay and creates a comforting micro-environment - a safe space for healthy growth.
