TheraB Medical: SnugLit

TheraB Medicala pediatric startup out of Michigan, is developing SnugLit, a wearable infant swaddle that treats neonatal jaundice with phototherapy. Neonatal jaundice affects 2.4 million infants in the United States and as many as 20 million globally. The most common treatment involves light therapy systems, which require constant monitoring by nursing staff and cause prolonged separation of mother and child. With SnugLit, babies no longer have to be separated from their parents during phototherapy, but instead can receive complete treatment in the arms of their caregivers.
