The 'Kanga' has been designed with the health of a newborn infant in mind to help ensure that they are always able to be helped as required without the need for complex equipment. The device works by allowing the infant to be placed within after birth to perform resuscitation if needed without having to bring it to another location. This is of particular benefit in developing nations where the instance of infant mortality is higher given the increased risk.
The 'Kanga' is the design work of Darja Wendel for Laerdal Global Health and identifies how solutions can be created that are focused on streamlining the health experience. In order to continue lowering mortality rates and increasing quality of life, we'll likely continue to see likeminded innovations coming about in the near future.
