Jaundice is a serious medical concern often faced by newborn babies but thanks to the SvetTex Phototherapy Nest, parents can ensure that their child remains safe from the skin-yellowing condition. Designed by Ioulia Kamalova, this unique blanket envelops a newborn and utilizes light therapy to help infants absorb UV rays and build an immunity towards jaundice. The Phototherapy Nest essentially creates a womb-like environment that protects babies while also ensuring the light therapy does not affect their eyesight.

The blanket itself is constructed from cotton and optical fiber yarns, both of which are designed to be flexible, permeable and easy to sterilize. The use of optical fibers help to distribute UV light evenly across the Phototherapy Nest while also ensuring the product does not heat up or emit radiations harmful to the child.
