A significant number of newborn babies require a doctor’s assistance in their first phase of life. Advanced equipment and medical care help premature babies to survive this time, and these children generally go on to be healthy. The present incubator not only assists the vital functions of the newborn’s body, it also considers the psychological aspect. This follows the findings of contemporary medicine, which increasingly emphasizes the significance of interpersonal contact in health. The fully equipped incubator is made of transparent material, which makes the child entirely visible. It is easy to move the equipment, and with the telescoping height regulator you can slide it over the mother’s bed so that she can be as close as possible to her prematurely born child.
