NICU noise is a well-established risk for preterm infants. The literature indicates that levels of noise found in these care areas can have short- and long-term health consequences. The Neoasis™ provides a non-contact means to reduce noise inside infant incubators.
SAN ANTONIO (PRWEB) November 05, 2019
Invictus Medical, the San Antonio, Texas-based medical device company dedicated to providing newborns with healthy development milestones, has been awarded a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Phase I grant to continue development of Invictus’ Neoasis™ device, a new, noise-attenuation technology aimed at making neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) more conducive to newborn infants’ development.
“NICU noise is a well-established risk for preterm infants. The literature indicates that levels of noise found in these care areas can have short- and long-term health consequences. Clinicians are looking for solutions to this problem,” said George Hutchinson, Invictus Medical’s Chief Executive Officer. “The Neoasis™ provides a non-contact means to reduce noise inside infant incubators.”
The NIH grant provides funding to complete the testing of the Invictus’ device in a hospital-based NICU simulator, providing the most realistic test environment without involving patients. Upon successfully completing this simulator testing, the Neoasis™ will be evaluated in the clinical environment.
