Inflatable baby incubator design wins the 2014 James Dyson Award

12 March 2015

A young designer, James Roberts, from the UK has created a low cost, inflatable incubator for use in the developing world. The innovative design features a 24 hour battery, ceramic heating elements and is fully collapsible for transporting, making it even easier to send to those in need. The MOM incubator costs just £250 rather than the £30,000 cost of existing technology - a figure that many hospitals in the developing world could only dream of affording.

As the winner of the James Dyson Award, Roberts has been awarded £30,000 to further test the project. He aims to get the MOM incubator into mass production, hopefully helping to save many lives in the process.
