Low Cost Battery Run Photovoltaic Driven Blue LED Blanket Therapy for the Jaundiced Newborn in Developing Countries

Arye Rosen of AMT, Inc., in the U.S., along with neonatologist Harel Rosen will develop and test a prototype, low-cost portable blanket phototherapy system to provide light therapy for the treatment of jaundiced infants at risk for acute bilirubin encephalophathy. This blanket will be powered by a battery charged via a photovoltaic panel, offering a low-cost therapy for newborns in resource-poor areas, including those where grid electricity is unavailable.
