In Cameroon, an average of 22,000 babies die after birth. Premature babies represent 35% of these (World Bank). For more than 5000 medical units, there are less than 100 functional neonatal incubators.

We propose a neonatal incubator called «Interactive Neonatal Incubator AUI 1.0». Totally Designed in Dschang (West Cameroon), it is compliant with the international standard. It is distinguished by its resilience to energy fluctuations and digital audiovisual interaction with the doctor’s smartphone.


This connected object will save thousands of lives and open up fields of study and analysis in neonatology. It is the first neonatal incubator designed and produced in Sub-Saharan Africa.
