Prioritizing Affordability and Portability, This Introduction Improves Accessibility to Treatment for Neonatal Jaundice.
Motif Medical, maker of insurance-eligible products for modern motherhood, announced the launch of its BiliTouch™ Phototherapy Blanket today. Intended for use in the treatment of infants diagnosed with hyperbilirubinemia, commonly known as neonatal jaundice, the BiliTouch™ is ultraportable, lightweight and battery-powered, ideal for use both in a hospital setting and at home.
Typically, phototherapy blankets cost upwards of $5,000 per unit. Wholesale pricing for the BiliTouch™ begins at $2,999, more than 30% less than any other option on the market. Also, unlike conventional phototherapy systems that are stationary, the BiliTouch™ is designed to be mobile, allowing parents to continue to hold, feed, and care for their baby while reducing high bilirubin levels at home.
“With every product we create, we aim to support mothers on their parenthood journey. This inspired our goal to not only make our phototherapy blanket more affordable for healthcare providers, but to be designed with mom and baby in mind,” said Brandon Fonville, Director at Motif Medical. “The result is a superior phototherapy treatment device that can be used in a variety of settings, from hospital to home, while fitting seamlessly into a newborn infant’s care.”
