Our investigational device is not available for sale. With contributions from hundreds of infants and their parents in past and ongoing studies, we are accumulating evidence to support regulatory approval for various neonatal medical conditions.

Clinical Research

- Pimun pilot study: In 10 patients, dorsal mechanical stimuli reduced baseline respiratory rate and increased oxygen saturation without altering sleep.

 

- T-shirt sizing: Defined 4 T-shirt sizes and 2 actuator sizes in 50 preterm infants under 32 weeks.

- Safety and comfort of T-shirts and actuators: In 10 preterm infants, favorable results in safety (92%), comfort (96%), professional (91%) and parental acceptability (80%).

- Optimal stimulation dose: In 12 preterm infants of 24-34 weeks, we tested 9 different stimulation doses and selected the one that most effectively improved oxygen saturation, achieving 78.4% respiratory synchronization.

- Reducing apneas: In 20 preterm infants under 34 weeks, pulsatile dorsal stimulation (PIMUN) reduced intermittent hypoxia in a randomized crossover study.
