From Low-Impact Baby Goods to Incubator Substitutes

By: Tiana Reid - Published: Feb 24, 2013
From low-impact baby goods to incubator substitutes, these social innovations for infants tend to be focused on health and sometimes through environmentally and bodily safe ingredients.

One of the innovations that Social Business has featured in its many new developments is Embrace. Embrace is a company that uses technology in order to create affordable ways to warm babies -- similar to a traditional incubator -- either newborns in the hospital or as a way for them to get from place to place in cold settings. Embrace recently came out with a new innovation called Embrace Next, which attempts to improve portability.

Social innovations for infants are typically a small part of social entrepreneurship as a whole but in many ways, the overlap between health, environment and babies make for an apt fit.
