Phoenix Medical always strives to be the first to bring pioneering technology to newborns. In this quest, Phoenix now partners with Windmill Health, to present NeoBreathe, the world’s first foot operated newborn resuscitation system.
NeoBreathe frees one hand of the user from bagging – allowing a two handed mask grip – which is known to improves face-mask sealing by over 50%.
Wouldn’t you love an intelligent machine which shares the same passion as yours to save a baby from RDS?
Neonatal RDS occurs in infants whose lungs have not yet fully developed. Respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) is a major contributor to neonatal mortality worldwide.
Most cases of RDS occur in babies born before 37 weeks. The less the lungs are developed, the higher the chance of RDS after birth.
The objective was to bring a next generation neonatal respiration support device and ultimately decrease the rates of RDS-specific mortality.
Each year eight million children die before their 5th birthday.
Three million of these deaths occur in the first 28 days and there is nothing more saddening than to watch helplessly as a new born babies life ends before it had had a chance at life. It doesn’t have to be this way. Many of these deaths are preventable if babies are placed in the safety and warmth of a neonatal incubator.
A person with lower limb disability may have to use a wheel chair for the entire life. In a conventional wheelchair the user spends time in a seated position all the time. This constraint gives rise to many physical as well as mental health related issues such as sore body, building of pressure points leading to pressure sores, lowered blood circulation, and dependence on other people for basic needs. One solution to this problem is to provide mechanisms in the wheel-chair to assist the person to stand.
Refreshable Braille Display (RBD) is a device that enables people with visually impairment to read digital text through tactile interface. Textual content in Portable Document Format (PDF), word documents etc. can be read using the display without having to emboss/print on braille paper.
Free from the demerits of both auditory devices and paper-embossed braille and at a price point below one-seventh of that of commercially available displays, RBD has been developed deeper penetration in both developed and developing countries.
