Life-Saving Carbon-fiber Incubator

This carbon-fiber incubator make it possible to transport ill newborns to hospital in a warm and secure way. Carbon fiber makes the cocoon tough and light. Previously doctors used a metal incubator, which was much heavier and it took several people to carry it. Usually an ambulance transported the heavy device. The new life-saving cocoon for babies, called Babypod II, was inspired by the cocoon of an F1 cockpit, which is both solid and impact-thwarting. Being lightweight, the new generation incubator can be carried by a single person. In addition, it needs less oxygen to fill than a usual incubator.
