Brilliance from a 2009 Sustainable Vision grantee

This photo is of a neonatal jaundice treatment technology being developed by a Sustainable Vision team from Stanford University working with the non-profit technology incubator, Design Revolution. The Enabling Effective Management of Neonatal Jaundice in Rural India team, a 2009 NCIIA grantee, developed an affordable world-class phototherapy device that will provide effective treatment for newborns in low-income hospitals. Instead of using fluorescent tube or compact fluorescent bulbs, the team’s device uses more efficient, high-intensity blue LEDs that can be supported by a battery backup.
