The Bambi-Belt is a soft fabric, skin-friendly, wireless monitoring device that accomplishes the same functions as wired adhesive electrode systems currently implemented in NICUs. The belt functions by being wrapped around baby’s chest. Sensors integrated inside the belt measure critical data in nonintrusive way, while a small transmitter and receiver allow wirelessly sending the data to existing patient monitors. Soft, non-sticky texture of the belt eliminates pain and stress of babies. While its wireless features allow parents to take baby out of the incubator and perform Kangaroo Mother Care.
MAKING THE LEAP
Bambi Medical developed a working prototype of the Bambi-Belt in cooperation with our partner Holst Centre. We are getting ready to start research studies of the Bambi-Belt in hospitals.
CLINICAL TRIALS TO PROVE BENEFITS
We expect to run clinical trials in the beginning of 2018 and prove the benefits that the Bambi-Belt brings to babies and their parents.
PRODUCT INTRODUCTION IN 2019
After having done clinical trials in 2018 and obtaining our CE-marking which is required to be able to go to the market, we are planning our first sales in the beginning of 2019.
