The 'Insulata' baby wrap has been designed by Fergus Vaux as a product for infants with a low birth rate to keep them supported in developing nations or low-resource areas. The thermally efficient wrap works by reflecting 90% of the heat dissipated from the infant back to them without the need for expensive or costly treatments. The wrap utilizes ultra-soft bamboo against the skin of the infant for optimal comfort, while the aforementioned reflective later is made from Outlast which was developed for use in NASA astronaut spacesuits.
The conceptual 'Insulata' baby wrap could be used either in the hospital or at home during the first weeks after birth to keep the child supported. The specialized design of the wrap also helps dissipate excess heat to prevent overheating.
