This item can help provide peace of mind to parents. It is a device that continuously takes biometric readings of an infant wearer while he/she sleeps: body temperature, motion, and waking times. The data is collected via bluetooth output from the Lilypad Arduino embedded in our Baby Jamas, and the data is accessible to parents via a web interface. Aside from providing day-to-day monitoring of a child's sleep health, the device helps parents and their healthcare provider(s) determine and assess the child’s well being if and when abnormalities are detected in the biological patterns recorded.
For example, some of the symptoms that infants born with a congenital heart defect suffer are breathing abnormalities and prolonged, unexplained fever. The device can help in identifying and or monitoring these conditions.
