Phototherapy lights- the bili light building begins! So I’ll be posting the video we created over these past two days once I have good internet for youtube uploading! For our end of the program conference we were assigned to do a non-traditional presentation so we chose to shoot a movie about the secondary project I mentioned earlier. We were able to find all the parts we needed in the limited time we had and it worked out great. We used all local materials which was really cool, because that’s one of the hardest parts about designing equipment for developing countries. In summary, their new set of bili lights can fit 3-4 babies underneath at one time, which was a need they had addressed in my many visits to the ward. After we finished we delivered it to the neonatal room and it fit into the cribs perfectly! The materials we used turned out to look really nice as well so we hope the hospital will continuously use it. The only worry is that the lights are used for decoration normally… and people have already asked us to get them some for their home!
