The project’s goal is to provide thorough care for a premature newborn while also restoring the timeless bond between parent and child that has been harmed by the unprecedented situation. The initiative also focuses on incorporating technology into the healthcare system to create an immersive experience.
The project began with a requirement to create a hybrid device that combines the advantages of an incubator and a warmer, but the first query was why do we need such a device. What are the most pressing issues that such a device can resolve? As the discussion went, the questions became more focused on what is lacking in the current system, who benefits, how parents are dealing with the situation, and how to foster a positive relationship between parents, caretakers, and the baby. As a result, a family-centered design approach is used in a situation in which mother and infant can be together, taking into account both the Indian and international contexts.
As a source of inspiration, the concept blends elegance with a soft touch. The form was motivated by the question of how to give such sensitive equipment a human touch. Colour, material, and finish must be premium, soft and should promote digital wellbeing. The thesis focuses on how to bridge a technically complicated product towards a user-friendly approach. Inclusion, safety, and intuitiveness are the three major design constraints.
