Hugsy - Multifunctional blanket for neonates


Hugsy is a swaddling blanket, made for use in the neonatal intensive care unit, that simulates and facilitates Kangaroo Mother Care. It reduces the stress experienced by babies during transfer from the incubator to the KMC sessions and back. Hugsy also aids in holding the baby in place on the mother’s chest during a KMC session for more comfort. In the incubator, the Hugsy plays back the mother’s heartbeat while comforting the baby with the mother’s scent. Designed by Jiachun Du
