The pre-term birth is the most difficult start into our world and a great challenge to the physicians, nursing staff and parents. Day for day they do their utmost to facilitate the baby start and to make life possible. The incubator Vita helps to achieve this aim. It conjoins the stability of a closed ambiance with the good access and contact possibilities offered by open care systems. In the majority of cases pre-term babies stay in the incubator for the first months of their life. Therefore a calm environment is an important factor for the future development. By an optimum air flow guide and the noiseless micro humidification system the generation of noise could be considerably reduced in the incubator THERMOCARE Vita.
