There are more and more premature children and their situation for their parents is dramatic. They would love to be with the newborn 24 hours a day, but in most cases they obviously cannot. At the Dutch UMC Ultrecht, they launched a project under the name Telebaby, in which cameras were installed at the incubators and parents can watch their child live 24 hours a day through even a mobile device.
Of course, the system is password protected, so only the affected parents can access the specific video channels. Isn’t it great? A very human, but not that expensive idea, a really Dutch approach.
