Top 5 Neonatal Equipment and Consumables from Leading Indian Manufacturers

Optimum care for newborns is possible today due to the use of appropriate neonatal medical equipment. The efforts of NICU equipment manufacturers who develop and supply high-quality products through consistent innovation are laudable. As a medical device platform, we feel it is necessary for buyers to have access to information about the most enquired product categories in Medzell.

We bring to you some of the most common neonatal devices that are in high demand worldwide. If you are a dealer or distributor of medical devices or a medical practitioner seeking to set up your healthcare center with equipment for the efficient treatment of newborns, you would certainly benefit from this list. 

1. LED Phototherapy Unit for Newborns

LED phototherapy units for newborns are devices used in the treatment of hyperbilirubinemia. Phototherapy is used to treat neonatal jaundice and it aims to expose the skin to the maximum amount of light. The neonates are irradiated with light in the blue area of the spectrum from 420 to 500 nm. 


I Rex Duo developed by Ibis Medical is the first rotatable 360° phototherapy unit in the world. This phototherapy machine for neonatal jaundice comprises a single unit that provides a double effect. The I REX Duo is unique as it can be used both as a single-surface and as a double-surface phototherapy unit. Moreover, it can be used in combination with any radiant warmer.  It is useful in treating even severe cases of jaundice in newborns in an optimal and economical manner. 

The innovative machine has a dual arm facility, which enables physicians to regulate the angle of light in order to deliver the desired intensity and cover the maximum surface area of newborns. The phototherapy unit offers the option to measure the intensity of light with the help of an attachable irradiance meter.

I REX Blanket

The I REX blanket is India’s first fiber optic LED phototherapy unit. It is the best way to allow ‘kangaroo care’ and bonding between infants and parents during the treatment of jaundice. Bonding with the mother is vital for the baby in the first few days. Since the blanket is lightweight, it can be transported to the NICU with ease. This device does not release unwanted wavelengths such as UV or infrared. Weight loss and skin rashes will not occur while using this phototherapy blanket.

The I Rex Blanket can be used as an under-surface unit or as an intensive double-surface phototherapy unit. In the former scenario, the blanket provides a cushioning effect and comfort to the baby. This phototherapy machine is an ideal solution for incubator or ventilator patients who need phototherapy as it does not take up too much space.

Bilipod 360

Bilipod LED phototherapy units were developed by AVI Healthcare for lowering the level of serum bilirubin in newborns. Bilipod 360 stands out since it provides multidirectional intensive phototherapy that gives more benefits in the treatment of neonatal jaundice. 

There is no chance of infrared or ultraviolet radiation while using this phototherapy unit. Moreover, LEDs have a long life of 30,000 hours. Using this phototherapy machine inevitably leads to a reduced treatment time. Its high level of irradiance contributes to the faster breakdown of bilirubin. It ensures that a stable environment is maintained. Moreover, the temperature is regulated using an integrated fan cooling system. 

Eye pads and protectors
