Positioning premature infants is a major challenge in intensive care. Newborn babies in general, but especially premature babies, are less active and often lie in one position. As a result, certain body parts are exposed to increased pressure. As the bones of the skull are still very soft in the first months of life, the head is sensitive to permanent pressure. This is particularly critical for premature babies, as the skull is still softer due to the low maturity at birth. Premature babies often have to be monitored in the hospital for several months and also have to stay in an incubator. Head deformations, such as plagiocephaly, brachycephaly and dolichocephaly, are often the result of unilateral positioning of premature and newborn babies on their sides or backs. In studies, the incidence of head deformations in premature babies is reported to be up to 90 %. With the Medibino Neo positioning system, we provide a solution for pressure-relieving positioning and stabilisation of the mid-head position of premature babies and infants during long hospital stays.
