a portable newborn incubator prevents hypothermia


according to UNICEF, each year in sub-saharan africa, more than a million newborns pass away from hypothermia during their first month of life. existing incubators in industrialized countries lack to fulfill the technical specifications of this context, mainly due to their failure to produce heat during frequent power blackouts and their vulnerability to harsh conditions like high humidity rates, dust, and raised temperatures. 

 

 

the master project by ÉCAL student fabien roy is dubbed ‘robustnest’ and takes form as a portable newborn incubator that is adapted to district hospitals. the project developed in collaboration with ELPF’s essential tech center will be presented at alcova during milan design week 2021 held from september 5-10.'robustnest': a compact and portable newborn incubator prevents hypothermiaall images courtesy of noé cotter

 

 

fabien roy, a designer and architect, and a student of swiss university ÉCAL has developed ‘robustnest’, a compact, durable and affordable incubator for infants. the project is suited for patient transportation in vehicles, can resist frequent power cuts due to its thermal battery by ELPF — ensuring babies stay warm — and is assembled by components that can be easily replaced locally.'robustnest': a compact and portable newborn incubator prevents hypothermia
