Target problem

Neonatal hypothermia is the leading cause of death in premature babies. Keeping a baby warm can avert this and help a premature baby gain weight (weight gain being an indicator of improving health in premature babies). Traditional incubators cost the earth and need continuous electrical supply. That can pose a problem especially in rural areas. Another problem traditional incubators pose in rural areas is their sheer complexity and therefore requires rigorous training of medical staff. And the last straw, once the equipment breaks down in rural areas, there is no one to fix it.
