"Each year, more than 1 million babies die on their birth day. 98% of these deaths occur in the developing world."  Embrace's innovative infant warmer costs a fraction of the price of a standard incubator, doesn’t require constant electricity and is portable, hygienic, and reusable.

Tasked with creating "innovative healthcare technologies to help combat maternal and infant mortality in developing countries," Embrace initially conceived of their idea for innovative infant warmers during a class at Stanford University's Design School.

Building just a better incubator wasn't the solution, according to co-founders Jane Chen and Dr. Rahul Panicker, and, in the video above,  NotImpossibleNow's Elliot Kotek recently chatted with Embrace Development Associate Molly Ronan to find out more.
