Babyleo delivers a unique combination of three different heat sources – ensuring optimal thermoregulation for neonates during open and closed care and transition.

With a mission to provide every newborn with the best start to life, Dräger has redefined neonatal care with the FDA-cleared Babyleo TN500, a new IncuWarmer. Dräger conducted extensive research to identify the optimal conditions for pre-term babies to thrive in the NICU, and designed the Babyleo to provide the best setting for neonatal development – taking into account the baby’s own environment, family involvement and clinical workflow.
Babyleo delivers a unique combination of three different heat sources – ensuring optimal thermoregulation for neonates during open and closed care and transition. The IncuWarmer also features a family centric design and easy, efficient workflow for care teams, creating beneficial developmental and neuroprotective conditions for neonates in the NICU.
Keeping babies in a thermal-neutral zone ensures that caloric expenditure is focused on growth rather than keeping the body warm. Babyleo is the first IncuWarmer to provide thermoregulation from three heat sources, including convective and radiative heat, as well as conductive heat directly from the mattress. At a minimum, two heat sources are always working and synchronized to automatically adjust to be more active at certain times.
Optimizing the Weaning Process
Studies have shown that early weaning protocols of preterm infants – from incubator to open crib – significantly reduce length of stay, improve parent bonding and reduce exposure to infections (1). Dräger designed the Babyleo to support and streamline this…
