Pregnancy and childbirth are sensitive issues for parents that require specialized vigilance and assistance to negate the difficult experience of having a premature child. Addressing the issue, designer Thiago Antonelli has come up with an infant care bed, Jenny, which reinterprets the role of the parents at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). The child care unit features transparent walls, which when not required can be removed to use it as a normal baby bed, while the infrared warmer on top maintains required temperature within.
Jenny also includes a baby pillow with a green button (to indicate the well being of the baby) that lets the mother feel the heat and heartbeat of the child even when she is away from the ward. While ergonomic design of the medical device allows the medical staff to perform complex treatment with ease. Creating a calm division between the environment of the NICU and child, the baby care bed allows the mother to be physically closer to the child, so she can have a close vigil on the activities of her premature child.
