TempWatch – Neonatal hypothermia monitoring bracelet
Bempu Health’s hypothermia alert device (TempWatch) is a simple neonatal bracelet which continuously monitors the temperature of an infant day and night for 28 days in the hospital and home setting. If the infant is hypothermic, the device sounds an alarm and flashes an orange light alerting the mother. The care givers are trained to give Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) to warm the infant well before injury or death can occur. Should the baby continue to be hypothermic despite warming actions, the device continues to alarm nudging the mother to seek skilled care since hypothermia is a sign of sepsis and other potentially fatal complications
