Silver
2012

The Firefly Phototherapy device was designed to treat newborns with jaundice in low-resource remote settings in Vietnam and Southeast Asia. The combination top and bottom phototherapy, robust enclosed housings, table-top size, removable and cleanable single-infant bassinet and high-tech medical aesthetic make trustworthy, intuitive and effective for in-room use with mothers in rural hospitals.
