Modern Phototherapy for Newborns

Modern Phototherapy for Newborns

The Firefly is the first low-cost phototherapy device trusted by Southeast Asian clinicians to be used for treating newborn jaundice in the same room with mothers in rural hospitals, optimizing the cycle of phototherapy and feeding for rapid and effective treatment. Its combination top & bottom phototherapy, table-top size, easily cleanable bassinet, intuitiveness, and high-tech aesthetic make it an ideal (and affordable) device for low-resource, remote settings like Vietnam and Southeast Asia.

Baby Beauty Sleep

Baby Beauty Sleep

A response to the growing problem of pollution and the threat it poses to little ones, the Cocoon pillow aims to reduce exposure to both polluted air and chronic noise. The device uses state-of-the-art noise canceling technology, a HEPA air filtration system, and an air particle ioniser to protect babies from loud sounds, germs, and contaminated air particles, ensuring they get a peaceful and healthy sleep. I definitely see potential for an adult version!

Urban Jungle Aircraft

Urban Jungle Aircraft

About the same size as a Mini Cooper and twice as fast, the Megacity Aviation concept was designed to transport goods rapidly through cities with major gridlock. The majority of the biofiber reinforced bioplastic frame is hollow like the bones of a bird, making it incredibly lightweight. Powered by two hydraulically operated coaxial rotors, it’s highly maneuverable and can carry up to 200kg.

Sounds Good to Me

Sounds Good to Me

SoundsGood is a hearing aid for women specifically designed to look like a classy earring. The device works in a very interesting way; depending upon the voice pitch of the speaker the earring displays graphic sound waves in colored signals. Different colors intuitively indicate if you are speaking too shrill, soft or appropriately for the user. I love the way technology is woven into an everyday object, so that the lady using the device is comfortable wearing the aid.

What’s Your Pee Telling You?!

There’s no denying it! We’ve all monitored our urine’s day to day qualities and wondered what it’s telling us! It’s smart to do so. The E-Urinal is a concept that will finally tell you.

Alternative Mobility for Rehabilitation

The Synchronic Walking Assistant is the result of various, subjective technological interpretations of the anatomical & physiological archetype of the human stride as well as the desire to create an entirely new mode of assistance. The device’s synchronized movement makes it possible to establish permanent assistance in a comfortable position while offering individual adjustment to each user’s unique needs whether it be physical therapy or simply added stability.

Syringe for Safe Injection

Syringe for Safe Injection

The One Time Injection Needle aims to help prevent accidental and intentional misuse, both of which contribute to the spread of disease such as HIV And Hepatitis C. In this design, the safety cap must be pulled back to insert the needle. Once retracted, the cap will stay in place to indicate prior use. Additionally, liquid-activated letters read “USED” once in contact with blood or another fluid.

Big Time Dental Alert!

Big Time Dental Alert!

I’d much rather get hit by a car than pay my dentist a visit! The noise of the drill machine and the sterile probes are good enough to freak me out. Hence this Tooth Guardian is a good way to keep a check on my teeth cleaning routine and ensure that I don’t need any dentists. The high-tech toothbrush integrates a camera and UV system to monitor and display photographs of one’s teeth while cleaning. Basically, the camera helps you thoroughly clean your teeth and the UV light sterilizes the brush. So far it all sounds good!

Life Saving Air Drones

Life Saving Air Drones

The Airborne Avalanche Rescue System by designer Tatjana Rolle aims to decrease crucial emergency rescue times after avalanches by utilizing autonomous airborne drones to detect and mark the position of victims.  Immediately following the avalanche, the activated drone leaves its solar charging station, scouts the area and tags the positions with bright paint so rescuers can recover victims without delay.

Multi-rescue Life Preserver

Multi-rescue Life Preserver

Current life preserver designs are useful but don’t account for these simultaneous rescues. The D-Rescue Can is a rugby-ball shaped preserver, perfect for throwing, that separates into two pieces in the shape of a stingray which multiple people can hold onto, decreasing rescue time and saving lives.

Baby Fever!

Baby Fever!

The Easy Read Thermometer is specifically designed for taking the temperature of babies. The idea may be old school of a strip, but the innovation is in the form of heat sensitive materials, sticky back and distinct LED display. Given that babies hate being poked and prodded, this sticky tape will do the trick effectively.
