The Embrace Infant Warmer is a low-cost innovation that aims to fight infant mortality in developing countries. Using either hot water or a small electrical element, each Embrace Infant Warmer costs less than 1% of a Western incubator.

According to the Embrace website, one of the biggest problems for babies in developing countries is hypothermia. The Embrace Infant Warmer aims to fight the fact that at least 4 million babies die each year because of their inability to regulate their own body temperature.
