Case Studies

Helping premature infants in transport.

Ghana – Accra Regional Hospital

Look who’s wearing Warmilu! 30-weeks old twins in Ghana at Accra Regional Hospital were transported successfully to the hospital. Before using the infant warming incubator blankets, babies would often arrive hypothermic. Upon using the blankets, infants are arriving stable and at normal temperatures.

Ghana – Sunyani Municipal Hospital Testimonial

In Ghana, things have really been going well with the blanket. The team has been really enjoying the use experience and, “it has been used 12th times by them [in less than one month]. The most amazing thing is that even after 4 days when you press the discs without boiling it starts heating up. The hospital is so grateful the head of nursing was asking if it could be used in the theater to welcome babies before they get to the NICUThe blanket is really performing amazing, they all send their love.”

Grace Aloko, Sunyani Municipal Hospital and Former Data Manager at Ghana Health Service

Pakistan – National Institute of Child Health Issued a Letter of Recommendation

“We first introduced the Warmilu IncuBlanket in 2018. The IncuBlanket was tested in our own environment for efficacy and to have clinical trials to look at the warming results. The blanket has been successfully warming babies, proving a safe alternative to incubator heat and a complement to conventional incubators. In a country like ours where deliveries are conducted in far flung areas and babies need to be transferred to a health facility, not even ambulances have the capacity to transfer the baby with maintenance of temperature which is utmost important in newborn survival. Thus this product can be a very useful tool in helping babies’ survival. We strongly recommend this product given the results of our study.”

Sincerely,

Dr. Syed Jamal Raza (Executive Director, National Institute of Child Health Karachi – 7551)

The Warmilu IncuBlanket Uganda Hospital Case Study

Simple and tested in the field, our Wipable IncuBlanket was used in a Kampala, Uganda hospital by Vital Health Africa. Wipable IncuBlanket used on every 2-6 infants transported per hour to the hospital.

Proven Non-Electric Recharge in Clinical Setting

The IncuBlanket was used successfully on infants in a controlled hospital setting. The warming pack was successfully recharged non-electrically through autoclave and boiling by nurses and the doctors Dr. Lawrence Fordjour, Dr. Leah Hodor, and Dr. Patrick Baingana.

Lasting Thermal Management

Maintains the temperature of preterm infants. Eliminated all incidence of transport hypothermia and significantly reduced respiratory distress. The infants have been admitted in flight transport and ground transport to the hospital between 36.5 to 37.5 degrees Celsius. Blankets have also successfully maintained temperatures in intrahospital transport. Labor and Delivery is on the third floor, the NICU is on the ground floor. Because of the wipable interior, we can warm anywhere from 2 to 15 infants per hour (at most 120 infants) with one blanket per 8 hours-long warming cycle.

Engineered with Non-Toxic Materials

Warmilu designed and engineered the warming packs with preterm infants in mind. This led the team to select all non-toxic and food grade materials for the core technology powering the IncuBlanket.

Validated in Clinical Hospital Transport Use

Every single infant (2-6 admitted by transport per hour) to this hospital have demonstrated healthy normothermia upon admission. Our infant warming blanket has become a part of the transport and admissions protocol and workflow. From prehospital transport, transport from labor and delivery to the neonatal intensive care unit, and operating theater warming, we can be used in multiple clinical applications. 

Proven Versatility in Clinical Setting

The IncuBlanket was used to generate warmth instantly (5-8 hours) upon the click of a disk. In addition, if there were a large number of transports and the autoclave was not available for reprocessing, the doctors and nurses created a separate warming workflow – pouring hot water over the pack for 15 minutes enabled the pack to hold onto heat for 2 hours to safely warm transport infants.

Spread warmth. Save lives.

Millions of infants are born premature each year and need consistent, safe warmth to allow them to grow and develop.

At Warmilu we know that there are many areas around the world where premature infants will not have access to electricity or traditional incubators. That is why we created the IncuBlanket. The IncuBlanket is a portable incubators system that is powered by the non-electric warmth of our InstaWarmer pack. Our blanket is used in hospitals and clinics as a supplement to kangaroo mother care, as an emergency incubator, or for infant transport.

Life Saving

Hypothermia is a leading cause of infant death around the world.

Long-Lasting Warmth

Warmilu’s warming packs provide warmth to infants for 5-8 hours. In combination with our IncuBlanket, they can prevent and manage infant hypothermia.

Safe and regulated Warmth

The core technology in the packs for the IncuBlanket are engineered to provide controlled and safe warmth for hours to manage infant hypothermia.
