The Bempu Hypothermia Alert Device continuously monitors a newborn for hypothermia. If hypothermic for 5 minutes, the device sounds an alarm and blinks an orange light to alert the caretaker to warm the infant. Once warm, the device returns to blinking a blue light every 30 seconds implying normothermia.
Enables early intervention: Bempu continuously keeps a check on the often unnoticed temperature variations and alerts for timely.
Protects in the critical neonatal period: Bempu continues to protect throughout the critical neonatal period, even when the newborn is discharged to home.
Promotes weight gain and growth: Bempu prevents prolonged cold stress and ensures the newborn maintains a healthy temperature, promoting weight gain and healthy growth.
