A group of four students from Karachi has developed a cheap, modern incubator to help reduce infant mortality rates in Pakistan. The incubator comes in a portable package that is easy to transport. It is predicted to significantly lower infant mortality rates if commercially developed. This initiative is a significant improvement in the field of childcare in Pakistan.
A mobile app called Neox Care, accessible from any smartphone will allow monitoring newborns in the incubator. Considering the low costs and unique features of the invention, this is certainly a welcome development.
