There are

1 million preventable

neonatal deaths every year

 

What is mOm?

The mOm Incubator is an inexpensive, electronically controlled, inflatable infant incubator designed and built to decrease the number of infant deaths.

The mOm Incubator offers a safe, medical grade environment for an infant to thrive in, whilst solving many of the problems of effectively incubating infants throughout the world. 

mOm was conceived by James Roberts during the final year of his university degree. Given the brief of 'design something that solves a problem', James learned from a TV documentary that the lack of infant incubators in Syria during the civil war was costing them an entire generation. James went about solving this problem and came up with the idea for the mOm Incubator.
