In addition to increasing infant survival rates, phototherapy incubators also help improve the overall health of newborns. They provide a controlled, sterile environment that is crucial to the health of premature infants and medically compromised newborns.
These incubators maintain a consistent temperature, which prevents sudden temperature changes that can be harmful to a newborn. Newborns maintain the proper temperature for their body, thus supporting the proper function of their vital organs. In addition, infant phototherapy incubators decrease the infant’s exposure to infection, thus promoting healthy growth and development.
