Backpack Neonatal Incubator

0
Colorado State University students have designed a neonatal transport incubator that is a backpack.  They believe the device will help medical personal safely move babies over rough terrain.
In just one six-month period in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2006, 96 newborn babies who were in need of medical care died before they could get help. In many developing nations, these deaths can be prevented simply by providing better ways for medical responders to transport infants properly over rough terrain and keep them alive until they can reach hospitals and clinics. Now, a group of Colorado State University seniors have designed and filed a patent for a medically equipped incubator backpack unit that they believe can reduce baby deaths in medical emergencies both in the United States and in newly industrialized nations.
