Shvabe’s Ural-based company was awarded a gold medal for BONNY mobile incubator at the 64th International Technical Fair held in Belgrade in May, 2022. Today, it is a unique portable system developed and commercially produced in Russia which is designed to ensure safe movement and transportation of newborn babies and to sustain their lives. The system has a range of advantages compared with foreign equivalents.
The incubator has been developed by the Urals Optical and Mechanical Plant (UOMP) in Yekaterinburg. The product may be used both in stationary hospital conditions (including one-person operation mode) and for long-range transportation in ambulances, airplanes, helicopters and other means of transportation. This device is especially important for hard-to-reach places, for example, mountainous and forest areas. The incubator is intended for transportation of babies weighing from 1 kg to 6 kg.
The system provides safe conditions inside the baby module, protects against low temperatures, vibrations and noise. Its competitive advantages include body temperature, heart rate and blood oxygen level monitoring sensors.
Earlier, BONNY has been honoured with awards by the Archimedes Innovation Club (Russia), Highly Innovative Unique Foundation (Saudi Arabia), World Invention Intellectual Property Associations (WIIPA) and Toronto International Society of Innovation and Advanced Skills (TISIAS).
