Neonatal Chair for Parental Care and an Improved Work Environment
Daily Challenges Many recliners are not intended for long periods of use even though it is important for parents and children to have skin contact. Members of staff can end up in poor working positions when helping or guiding parents who are sitting on a recliner with their child. Parents need help when sitting on a recliner for long periods of time. When the child is in an incubator, it is difficult for parents to see and touch their child due to the height difference between the incubator and the recliner. Hospitals do not have the space for a parental bed next to each child in an incubator.
