I am currently an Industrial Design student at the University of Cincinnati. This semester I am focusing on a project that involved creating a device + phone app system to foster the bond between parents and their babies in the NICU. I am considering designing the device so that it can be clipped to the incubator as well as worn as a bracelet. This device would monitor heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, temperature, sleeping patterns, etc. and all of this information would be sent to a phone app for the parent to through. This way the parents would be able to constantly monitor the baby even if they cannot physically be there, and without feeling like they may be irritating or bothering the nurses/doctors. The device would also allow for the parent to play music or recordings, show colors, etc. to the baby (based on the ideas of color theory, visual stimuli, and nurture). In order for this project to be successful I would love feedback from parents who have been/are going through this. If you have any suggestions to what could be needed and added, what may work/not work, etc. please feel free to reach out to me either here or my email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance for your help! I am very passionate about this project and hope to help foster the bond between parents and their babies that may feel absent when separated.
