Thermal Blanket


Infants have difficulty thermoregulating properly. Hospitals have difficulty providing specific temperatures for each patient. Specific parts of the body may require different ideal temperatures. A novel sleeping pad can provide better health care, patient comfort, improved thermal management, and data collection.
