Promoting Healthy Growth Through Developmental and Family Centered Care

Technology

The innovative features of the Giraffe Incubator help support the growth, development, and stability of each newborn in your care.

  • The patented Baby Susan* rotating mattress minimizes unnecessary baby stimulation. It rotates 360° so you can easily position your patients for all types of procedures without disturbing them.
  • The layered Giraffe pressure-diffusing mattress provides a soft support surface that can help relieve pressure points and preserve your patients’ skin integrity.
  • The Proportional Control and Cascade* keeps pace with your patients’ thermal needs, which helps reduce environmental stress.
  • WhisperQuiet* Mode helps reduce unnecessary noise to create a quiet, soothing environment, which helps calm anxious patients and their families.
  • All View controls displays are centrally located to provide accessibility from either side of the bed so you can clearly view all equipment and patient parameters throughout the room.
