MOM is an affordable, inflatable incubator, and the winner of this year’s James Dyson Award. James Robert, a recent graduate of Loughborough University in England, invented MOM after he was inspired by a documentary on premature babies in refugee camps.
“James’ invention shows the impact design engineering can have on people’s lives,” said James Dyson. “The western world takes incubators for granted – we don’t think about how their inefficient design makes them unusable in developing countries and disaster zones. By bravely challenging convention, James has created something that could save thousands of lives.”
