Preterm birth is a vast global phenomenon, not without consequences. It is associated with an increased risk of brain damage and neurodevelopmental deficit.
BabyLux – An Optical Neuro-Monitor of Cerebral Oxygen Metabolism and Blood Flow for Neonatology – is an innovation that will save lives!
According to the World Health Organization (2012) about 1.1 million babies die from preterm birth complications. This is the second leading cause of death, globally, for children under five.
BabyLux provides an innovative and reliable tool to monitorand assess brain blood flow and oxygenation in extremely preterm neonates. It’s a non-invasive, robust and integrated system that uses advanced photonic technologies to enable neonatologists to prevent neurological damages due to lack of oxygenation in the brain.
