About Breegi Scientific
Breegi Scientific is on a mission to develop the world's first portable and low cost infant incubator platform with a disposable housing. Our long-term vision is a world where no babies die due to lack of access to neonatal incubators. To ensure that we help as many children as possible, today, Breegi Scientific has also established a non-profit to provide free Neonatal Intensive Care Incubators to high-risk communities.
Our Incubator is the first multi-functional disposable low- cost Neonatal Intensive Care Incubator. It is a practical user-friendly, efficient, low maintenance, inexpensive, incubator designed to significantly reduce neonatal mortality and morbidity. The device is less than 1% cost, size and weight of the regular hospital incubator. It provides any community with a NICU capability for a healthy start.
