Embrace's Jane Chen: Many premature babies aren't given a chance to survive | WIRED 2012 | WIRED

"Many premature babies are never given a chance to make it out of the hospital. Because there are no incubators, the babies are left to die. They are put on a table or directly in the trash without the comforting touch of their mothers in those final moments."

It is just one of countless emails Chen and her team received since launching the social enterprise based in Bangalore, which aims to bring "simple, affordable and locally appropriate technology" to impoverished areas, to help save the lives of the 20 million premature and low-birth weight babies born every year. Of this figure, four million die within the first 28 days and this is often largely due to a lack of access to a technology many take for granted -- an incubator. "In the early days these babies don't have body fat to regulate their temperature -- they die or have long term health problems because the rest of the organs don't develop properly," said Chen.
