A $25 'Sleeping Bag' Incubator to Join More Than 40 Innovations at 'Extremely Affordable Health Innovations' News Conference and Exhibit at 6th Annual World Health Care Congress, April 15, 2009
Date:4/10/2009

Solutions on display at news conference and panelists to demonstrate how life-saving care is possible through inexpensive means

WASHINGTON, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- A $25 "sleeping bag" incubator, a low-cost wheel chair made from repurposed bicycle parts and mobile phone games for AIDS/HIV education will be among the 40+ innovations on display at the Extremely Affordable Health Innovations exhibit and press conference, Wednesday, April 15, 12:30 p.m. at the World Health Care Congress in Washington D.C. Over 40 innovative organizations from around the world will demonstrate and discuss the technologies and processes that are dramatically improving healthcare delivery in the developing world and can be applied to improving health care in the United States.

For example, the $25 Embrace Infant Warmer uses a phase change material in a sleeping bag design to regulate a baby's temperature. Traditional incubators in the U.S. cost up to $20,000. With no power needs or moving parts, the portable warmer is intended to help address the plight of millions of low-birth-weight and premature babies born each year in developing nations.

The exhibit at the April 14-16 World Health Care Congress will feature as a press conference on April 15 with Philip Musgrove, Deputy Editor-in-Chief, Health Affairs Scott Hillstrom, CEO, HealthStore Foundation; Frank Rijsberman, CEO, Google.org to discuss the extremely affordable health solutions project. Most of the projects such as the incubator and wheelchair are in the developmental stages and shed insight into how life-saving care is possible through surprisingly inexpensive means, while others such as the Aravind Eye Hospitals in India and CFWShops in Kenya have proven that low-cost, high-quality health delivery can be a sustainable business in low-resource settings.
