Preemie is the first clinical neonatal system that provides data-driven decision support for optimal and personalised feeding and care of preterm infants
Prematurity is not only the leading cause of mortality in children but can also result in devastating diseases such as necrotising enterocolitis (NEC), as well as in long-term disorders and sequelae such as vision and hearing problems. Besides the tremendous impact on the quality of life of preterm infants and their families, the economic burden for the whole society is huge.
The Preemie ecosystem helps reduce the risks associated with premature birth by enabling a rapid and affordable analysis of human milk composition, and delivering data-driven calculations for the targeted fortification needed to meet the unique nutritional needs of each preterm infant. The system also provides in real-time a time-stamped visualisation and analysis of the infant’s growth-related data and the corresponding nutrition given, thus supporting a retrospective understanding of fortification metrics and growth outcomes.
