NICI: Our Innovative
Neonatal Intensive Care Incubator
NICI is a Solution for the U.S.A.
Each year 380,000 babies (1 in 10) are born premature across the U.S., which has the highest rates of infant mortality among developed nations.
Only 40% of preterm babies are delivered in a hospital NICU (neonatal intensive care unit), leading to more sick and dying newborns - and profound trauma to our families and communities.
American minority newborns have 2-3 times higher rates of infant mortality, and rates for all newborns have been climbing in recent years.
NICI will increase access to incubators, improve safety, and reduce healthcare costs to help providers, mothers and newborns everywhere.
An Incubator for All Newborns
Over 160 rural U.S. hospitals closed in recent years due to high costs and many large city hospitals also face financial constraints.
48% of full term babies need a neonatal incubator at least once. Adding to that, the incidence of Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) - associated with opioid overuse in pregnant mothers - has also increased by 433% in rural U.S. areas; increasing the need for baby incubators.
80% of preterm infants and over 50% of full term infants develop jaundice, which adds a significant cost to healthcare.
NICI is purpose-built for all situations and will provide a practical, affordable and multifunctional incubator to help as many newborns as possible, no matter how far.
Reducing neonatal morbidity and mortality are Sustainable Development Goals: without a comprehensive solution millions of babies die annually from preventable causes with tens of millions more disabled.
These complications include breathing, breastfeeding, and maintenance of optimum body temperature. Neonates are also more prone to anemia, jaundice, infections and other chronic diseases.
Infant morbidity and mortality are directly associated with global development. Preterm births result in serious economic and social problems that affect millions of children annually, and billions are spent to improve these issues with limited success.
Children who are born prematurely experience a serious range of illnesses and disabilities, directly relating to the lack of available infant incubators.
