Product description Brand name and product description

The ApneBoot is an apnea monitoring device for infants developed by Bempu Health. The device is in prototype stage and is currently undergoing clinical validation. ApneBoot is a shoe that monitors an infant for episodes of central apnea. When one is detected, the shoe vibrates the infant’s foot (stimulating the nervous system to restart breathing) to prevent apnea related damage. It sends out alarms (using both sound and light) to alert nurses and caretakers that an episode of central apnea is occurring. The ApenBoot can be used in homes, wards, neonatal intensive care units, and during medical transport.
