Jeno / Infant Monitoring


Jeno is a pillow for infants up to twelve months that has an integrated monitoring system for the parents that senses the infants position and condition. After interviewing a large number of young mothers it became clear that current baby monitor solutions are to complex to set-up but also that they face enormous pressure, stress, fears in the first year which leads to an often unhealthy lifestyle. Jeno gives parents the chance to sleep more peacefully, seeing the baby without disturbing it a night and knowing when a negative trend occurs. This allows awareness and prevention of fears like Flat Head Disease or potential Sudden Death Syndrome.
