Infant Warming

Helping premature infants around the globe

The Warmilu IncuBlanket

Simple and tested, our IncuBlanket can help you with your infant thermal management needs. With your partnership and support, we can reduce and manage preterm infant hypothermia.

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 boiling by nurses and the principal investigator.

Lasting Thermal Management

Maintains the temperature of preterm infants for 5-8 hours. The IncuBlanket is currently being engineered to last for 8+ hours.

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 Trials

During pilot clinical trials in Bangalore India at KIMS Hospital in 2013, we successfully maintained the temperature of 20 preterm infants for 3.5 – 5 hours.

Warmilu Designs alongside Doctors

Development with Physician Innovators Highlight

Dr. Leah Greenspan Hodor has a drive to make a difference and innovate. When Dr. Leah first began working with Warmilu, the team identified the potential to improve the infant warming blanket to make it easier to use and re-use for healthcare teams. Initially, Warmilu had a washable blanket with a knit interior, which could be difficult to re-use in resource-scarce hospitals. She provided first-hand fieldwork feedback and data collection of blankets warming 2 babies every few hours. This feedback enabled the Warmilu team in a single month to create wipable blanket surfaces. This allowed Dr. Leah’s team, by using the Warmilu IncuBlankets, to use the new wipable surface White Transport Incubator Blankets to warm 2-15 infants per hour.

“Anytime you save a baby it’s a beautiful thing,” she says. Dr. Leah has traveled to Uganda, Rwanda, Ghana and Haiti, where she has trained scores of doctors, nurses and midwives in techniques to save newborn babies in peril. “A large percentage of neonatal mortality is preventable if you have the proper training,” she says, adding, “And when you save one baby, you’re not only saving that baby’s life but potential generations.”

When she’s not traveling abroad or developing medical and educational initiatives, Greenspan Hodor works 16-hour shifts in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) at two community hospitals in the Washington, D.C. area. “I am gone 10 weeks a year developing the project,” she says, often traveling to Africa five times a year.

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 3-6 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.
