Target problem

Neonatal hypothermia is the leading cause of death in premature babies. Keeping a baby warm can avert this and help a premature baby gain weight (weight gain being an indicator of improving health in premature babies). Traditional incubators cost the earth and need continuous electrical supply. That can pose a problem especially in rural areas. Another problem traditional incubators pose in rural areas is their sheer complexity and therefore requires rigorous training of medical staff. And the last straw, once the equipment breaks down in rural areas, there is no one to fix it.

Key product / Service

Embrace Nest, Embrace Care, Little Lotus Embrace Innovations has designed affordable products for infants. Flagship products of Embrace Innovations are Little Lotus, Embrace Care and Embrace Nest. Little Lotus offers baby swaddles, sleeping bags and blankets which help in maintaining ideal temperature for the newbies. Embrace Care and Embrace Nest are recommended by doctors as an alternative to Kangaroo Mother Care where the former operates without the use of electricity and latter doesn’t require constant electricity support. Hence, these products are an effort to reduce the neonatal diseases.
