Wireless sensors for neonates to encourage Kangaroo Care

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am working as part of a student-team at the University of Cambridge on the idea of developing wireless sensor technology for neonates in the NICU. The overarching goal of this is to progress the technology to a point where it serves to reduce the barrier to kangaroo care. In addition it is hoped the lack of attached wires will have a positive impact on the delivery of care from NICU nurses and doctors in emergency situations. There is also potential to develop the technology to be useful to low and medium income country NICUs.

As part of the development we are trying to get opinions from a broad range of healthcare professionals working in NICUs all over the world. Here we have a survey which is aimed at medical professionals. It should only take 10 minutes of your time but all comments are greatly appreciated and will help a great deal towards maximising the clinical impact of the sensor technology.

Thanks in advance for any possible comments / advice / insights you can offer - we really appreciate it!! If you have any questions feel free to ask below,

NOTE: We aren't actually associated with the group who published on wireless neonatal sensors in Science last week - and if you haven't seen that paper I would recommend giving it a read!
