Neonatal Transport System

In the event of a vehicle (transporting a neonatal patient) being involved in an accident (even a minor one), the chances of the child being severely injured or killed as a result is considerable. A S.K.I.P Harness installed in your transport incubator, cot or stretcher will GREATLY reduce the risk.

For years we have all been told to ‘buckle up’ when traveling in automobiles or aeroplanes; but when it comes to transporting neonates by either of these modes of transport, until now, there has been no means of securing these fragile, vulnerable children into the very machine that is supposed to save their lives.

‘…in an accident (even a minor one), the chances of the child being severely injured or killed as a result is considerable!…’

Developed with considerable input from the National Womens Hospital Flight Transport Team in Auckland, New Zealand; extensive research, 2 years of design and development (including numerous prototypes), and the S.K.I.P. Harness™ (Patent Pending) is finally available. Comprising a 5 point securing system that, via the fixing kit, can be incorporated into most of the neonatal transport incubators available today; the S.K.I.P Harness is manufactured to stringent specifications from soft leather, providing: strength, durability and comfort along with complying with infection control standards.

Untitled-1Neonatal transport creates many challenges for the neonatal nurse by the sheer nature of the isolation of the transport environment. Babies should be offered the same level of care during transport that can be expected from the NICU.
