BABYBE is a bionic mattress that keeps mothers and their babies connected through the process of artificial incubation. We bring haptic information from the mother to the baby on real time, making the environment inside the incubator machine less stressing while giving the mother an active role in the care of her preterm infant.
We do this by collecting the mother´s body signs like heart beat, breathing and voice, through a device installed in the her chest, and translating those signals into movement on a Bionic Mattress that emulates the mother chest in all of its nuances.
1 of every 8 births is premature in USA. A preterm baby stays average 21 days inside of an incubator, costing an average of USD$76,000. BABYBE aims to bring the preterm babies out of the incubator machine sooner and involve the mother actively in the care of her baby.
