FOR THE NEONATAL INTENSIVE CARE UNIT
2008

An adaptable and unobtrusive monitoring system for the Neonatal Intensive Care. It is com-posed of a mat that takes its form in a soft layer of gel, which is sensitized and capable of analyzing the micro-movements of the child and of surveying the pressure points on the child’s body, as well as the temperature; and the BioBelt, a sensitized band that permits the monitoring of the cardiac frequency, the respiratory frequency, the respiratory movements and the tempe-rature. The system provides a context for experience where the medical treatment is reconciled with parents’ needs for emotional bond with their child.
