Dignity Health and Honor Health Systems was available in to support the company along with previous financiers like the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and his other half Ashley and other, undisclosed investors.
Initially planned for hospital use, the business rotated to pitch its hardware to new moms and dads because they’re now being motivated to take newborns home as soon as possible so that they can be quarantined.
The company’s light therapies are created to treat conditions like jaundice, which happens in roughly 60% of babies and can cause mental retardation if left neglected, according to a statement from the company.
“The obstacle is that the doctor may not know if treatment is necessary up until the newborn is 3 or four days old, frequently after the baby has gone house from the health center,” company founder Vivek Kopparthi said in a statement.
