Nueva Vida / Birth Tub

Nueva Vida
Nueva Vida

This product is a new birth-tub concept, which improves the whole act of a birth. The target was to create the most professional product, which includes a warm atmosphere for the parents and also the improvement of the working conditions of the medical team.
A new concept of "going inside the birth-tub" includes also a much more ergonomical design. This concept is not an idea about new technologies, it is a "social" concept for the becoming parents, including the better medical controll and working conditions of the medical team.
Touchsreen technology and telemetric technology combined with natural/human thinking, this is NUEVA VIDA.
